All totally natural processes.

That tree can be replaced. Maybe the beavers' young don't want that beaver killed!
your a idiot that tree I would estimate is 50 years old. And every year it has little black cherries that birds eat. the landowner isnt gonna and cant wait 50 years for another tree to grow. that land is overflow land during the spring. already those beaver have dug a hole under the bank and chewed down many smaller trees that are a natural berm that prevents erosion. The beavers wont be there much longer. We thought about putting wire around the tree to prevent chewing. but that wont work because the beaver are also digging under the tree and will chew the roots. The tree and preserving the land is more importiant and preferable than having the beaver. there are no young there isnt a lodge or nest yet. and there never will be at that location.

I believe almost NOTHING Obama says. I also believe almost NOTHING ANY politician says, regardess of party. You people are so duped into believing your respective partIES can do no worng, you don't see the forest for the trees. You call out Barney and others for repeating liberal talking points while you repeat republican talking points. And you don't even see yourself doing it. You have all been brainwashed. No offense, but it's true....with the exception of Churm.

a guy was having problems with beaver damming up a stream. At great expence they would dynamite the dam and the beavers would built right back. So I took my 690 JD excavator (track hoe) over there. It has a hydraluc thumb and we took apart the dam stacked the sticks and logs alomg the bank. then I dug all the dirt,gravel and sloop out of the creek bottom and slung it along the bank. We cleaned it out for a 1/8 mile clear to the bedrock. there wasnt anything left to anchor the dam to and the beaver left. It made me a nice payday and the owner was delighted.

Dam rivers, reroute rivers, build on floodplains, etc....
And guess who DIES all the time because of so-called control and our "humans first" theory?

You are the idiot to assume that I meant the only way to replace a tree that acts as a post is to wait 50 years for another tree like it to grow! LOL.
I'll spell it out a little more clearly for you, okay? Attach the damn fence to a different tree, or a post or build some other strong structure. To assume that tree will stand there forever just because you kill a beaver is idiotic. I guess AR doesn't get strong winds that could easily take down a large tree along a river.

Sounds like it would be very easy to relocate the beaver to another area.

You should see how these damn beavers have destroyed areas in Northern New Mexico. They can cut down dozens of Aspen trees weekly to build there dams. People around here usually shoot them on sight..

The current administration released a bunch of dangerous criminal illegals in AZ. The local sheriff sent a letter to Secretary Napolitano asking for an investigation. The release of those criminals was done with no communication to the sheriffs dept in that town ahead of time. Anyone in congress from either house could call for an investigation. Will there be one? The silence is deafening.
