That beaver might have been a rouge KGB attack beaver from the cold war!

Phil Robertson (re: Duck Dynasty) comments that while "yuppies" always think beaver are cute and cuddly, they are really nothing but giant rats and should all be killed as soon as possible.

Now I know where the saying "save a tree, eat a beaver" came from.

Probably was the Chernobyl mutated beaver..

Be careful. They're hard to kill. You'll have to get in close and stab it repeatedly.

Beaver - Wait for the beaver to come on land, then club it, drop-kick it, hit it with a rock, or catch it by the tail. It is a sturdy animal, so if you catch it by the tail, swing it in a pendulum motion until it begins to relax, then swing it against a tree or the ground or use a noose to kill it. Another way to get a beaver is to dig out the beaver dam so the water drains. The beaver will come to inspect the damage at which time you can straddle the channel and grab the beaver by its tail as it swims through. Immediately start to swing the beaver as above. CAUTION: Take care to keep it from biting you. Its bite will leave a large wound.

Odd. Never imagined they had teeth. And yet in hindsight, how could we not have known????

I guess one bite in big venes or arteries could end a life pretty quick.
Still its the man invading the animals territory - no reason to kill that animal.

Speaking of the aquatic mammal, Wait until your property is threatened by a beaver dam or your creek is contaminated with Giardia

See how cute they are then. It happened to a good friend of mine.

I saw a video of this where it never shows the man who was supposedly killed. I'm sure they have strong teeth and jaws, I don't buy that it was able to get that good of a bite in on a man, who would be moving when the beaver jumped on him.

could happen of course, but its not like these are our enemies and you have to "kill em all".
They need a place to live too and if you go into their territory you have to behave.
Its like going into a forest and complaining about the animals there, shooting everything on sight.

Imho nature should always be preserved as good as possible and every animal should be handled with respect and care, even if its a wild one that attacks you.
If you get attacked - get out of there, if it doesnt work or is too dangerous scare it away with pepper spray, shooting in the ground or similar - if that is too dangerous or doesnt work - kill it.

"Could happen" ? are we having an internet/overseas translation problem here? It DID happen. did I not make that clear enough?

I live in "The Beaver State" and unfortunately it refers to the aquatic mammals.

Do you know what Giardia is? do you know how it is transmitted? Sorry but my State animal has no business around the human environment. Cute critters that they are, they are still a pain in the *** and a health hazard. Their 'dams" create swamps that become mosquito breeding grounds.

Did you REALLY say this,

"every animal should be handled with respect and care, even if its a wild one that attacks you."


??????


stay away from my area, where we actually live with the cuddly critters of the forest. You wouldn't like what you see. Reality bites.

We have enough problems here with other animals, but still the solution cant be to declare a war against the nature - thats sick.
Sometimes they are problems for the enviroment because there are too many, they transmit diseases or other things, but its not like its their decision. The human has a big influence when it comes to this by taking their space to live. As a result you cant handle all animals like pesty little critters and just kill them.

Preserve the nature as good as possible, one day you will regret it if you dont. Thats not hippie ****, thats important.
