Critter Problem Might Be Over: Bessemer City's beavers beat it out of town

There are 2 comments on the story from Oct 3, 2007, titled Critter Problem Might Be Over: Bessemer City's beavers beat it out of town. In it, reports that:

“They've been out of the picture for the last few weeks. Maybe they got disgusted with us and left.”

The Bessemer City beavers have backed off.

You'll recall that in August they were hard at work building dams of limbs, sticks and mud on a creek that feeds into the town's main water source.

As soon as city crews demolished the dams, the beavers rebuilt. In the middle of a severe drought when every drop of water counted, this was a serious issue.

Officials checked with the N.C. Wildlife Resource Commission about the problem and decided the beavers had to go. But a plan to trap the beavers drew protests from animal rights activists from New York to Michigan. Read more

When will people stop playing these stupid "animal rights" games? And when will small town councils stop announcing their "environmental plans" (such as beaver trapping), when they know good and well that it's going to piss off the stupid animal rights activists? Look, next time beavers dam up your water supply, take a 12 ga shotgun, go kill the dam beavers, and toss their bodies back in the woods...and DON'T ANNOUNCE it to the world.
