Pesky beavers meet their match
Placeholder Image
The first springtime flock of migrating Canada geese passes overhead as Wayne Smith and I survey the damage wreaked by a hyperactive beaver along the banks of the Pecatonica River. The trapping season will close at the end of the month, and Wayne will try to rid the premises of the fur-bearer before it has another season to tear up the banks and girdle what are left of the aspen trees on the wooded slope nearby.
