    They're no joke, even though they look odd and funny. That said, their tails are suppose to be good eating. Indeed, many feel that their tails are the only part of any value. Whatever. Point is, no matter how docile and submissive beavers might seem, they are often short tempered, violent, aggressive and quick to attack, and unforgiving. If you've spent much time around beavers, you probably already know this.


    Their numerous shortcomings aside, everyone seems to agree that at times they can be a lot of fun!





    It leaves me to wonder, how did they come to be called "beavers"?

    I don't know. Never thought about it until now.

    Here are some more beaver pics:

    A beaver killed a fisherman.



    A rabid beaver attacked man in the boat.





    Stick your paddle in the hole and you might get a growl.


    How to prepare beaver for eating.


    Enjoying beaver in the Far North. (Baste it good, but careful, ... it's hot.)

    You are saying that a beaver killed a man on dry land? They have some nasty teeth and they are not small but killed a grown man?

    You should always be somewhat wary of wild animals and respect their space. I would guess most bites are to people who try to handle them or provoke them somehow ( like the girl with the paddle).

    Good comment @donttread. Have you seen this from Mr. Hanson who is also smart? Be sure to view it.

    'Beavers were responsible for most of the farmland in the West @2:46-2:58 and without beaver dams there are huge areas of land left with less water and hundreds of species left without a habitat.'

    How Dangerous Is the Beaver?
    BY NATHAN CHANDLER DEC 6, 2019

    But the truth is that beaver attacks make great headlines for one reason they are incredibly rare.

    "Beavers in the wild are not considered dangerous," emails Michael Callahan, president of the Beaver Institute, which works to reduce beaver-human conflicts using non-lethal methods. "Unless they are threatened, the most aggressive behavior beavers will exhibit is slapping their paddle tail on the water to create a loud noise."

    [...]

    What Are Beavers Really Like?

    Beavers are the largest rodents in North America, often weighing between 35 and 65 pounds (16 and 30 kilograms). Although they're clumsy on land, they're much more graceful in the water, able to swim about 6 mph (10 kph). Thanks to their larger-than-average lungs, they can hold their breath for around 15 minutes, which means they can swim perhaps half a mile (0.8 kilometer) before they need to resurface for air. They spend their days building dams and lodges (for protection against predators and to store food) not dreaming up ways to dismember humans.

    Do Beavers Help or Hurt the Environment?

    The results are often a win-win for both beavers and other creatures. "Beavers are tremendously beneficial to the environment. They are North American 'keystone species' meaning their presence on the landscape increases biodiversity," says Callahan. "Beavers build dams to turn streams into ponds. The new habitats created support innumerable plant, insect, fish and animal species, including salmon and other endangered species."

Where I live there is an endless war ( kinda like the ME) between property owners and Beaver, I have torn out more than one damn myself.

    That may be why ways of strife are under fire. You told on some so who gets fired? The magic is beavers know water is sacred creating ponds that hold water. Need a drink, the thirst is gone. Land without water has less value without accessible water. That puts the beaver higher up the ladder. If its talent is not rebuked, its spirit not crushed, there will be fair weather. To hell with killers. It is in the original teachings of Christ how animals are treated there is good or bad karma that comes in the life after. Treat animals like ---- karma will bite harder.
