It just never ends......

    An aggressive beaver in a Red Deer off-leash park

    Several other reported beaver attacks...

    The central Alberta city has rarely had to deal with problem beavers, despite a large population...

    A team is being called in to locate the beaver

    ...whether it's one or more. Beaver identification is pretty challenging...

    "For us, this definitely was a first. It came as a bit of a surprise for us, and we're taking it really seriously," he said.

    The city first learned of the beaver problem...

    ...had a run-in with a beaver that left the dog bleeding and injured.

    ...she didn't want other dogs to fall prey to the beaver.

    ...that there is a beaver who's been quite aggressive lately...

    Red Deer has a relatively robust beaver population....30 beaver lodges...

    The beaver...likely to be removed from the area...it's possible that traps will be used.

    Beaver Facts

    Measures: About 1.3 metres long, from nose to tail, weighs 16 to 32 kg

    Defences: Under attack, beavers stand their ground and protect themselves. They face the aggressor, rear up on their hind legs, and loudly hiss or growl before lunging forward to deliver extremely damaging bites.


    I think I'm noticing a pattern here......I was once in a pub near FDIC that explains everything....

    Fox News just now had a story how wild animals are losing their fear of humans.

    Not just humans.Not long ago I was boating with friends and we happened to go where I am sort of employed(still on injury profile while workman's comp is tied up)and we saw a beaver on the bank squared off with a coyote.
    Wile E. was definitely getting the worst of the encounter and should have hunted in a pack for supper,even if it meant sharing with the big dog.

    It would save money.Instead of paying out tax dollars for a wildlife expert to remove a few beavers,they could have interested parties pay to solve the problem.
    I am told that beaver(the wood gnawing kind,ya preverts) tastes like pork and any good piggy recipe works well with the meat.Waste nothing.
    Where I work on the Mississippi River here at Memphis,we have a dock barge that is home to literally 12 angry beavers(we counted them).It is a rite of passage to new hires to send them into the wingtanks on that dock to "fix the leak" only to have them encounter some hissing furry critters in a dark confined space.
    There have been guys levitate from that tank without touching rung 1 on the way out.

If the owners aren't able to control their pup(s) then seems like common sense that they shouldn't be at an off leash park in the 1st place.

    Another option would be to put a couple of Patterdale Terriers in the area. The beavers will learn to respect pup real quick.....

    How bout sending Cesar Milan up there.....? Maybe he can talk/whisper both parties into being good..... LOL.

    That may sound funny, but I had been spending a lot of time on a major river and can testify to their recent belligerence. I even felt compelled to take drastic defense measures.

    And they did even resemble a gang at times. Grouping together on a neighboring dike as the morning developed and being very noisy. Obviously upset at my being close by. They kept my attention versus on my rigs as I should have been.

    There are many river animals getting attitudes, but the beaver seemed especially so. So I do understand a Red Deer Beaver being suspect.
