I tore out a dam on my creek. When I came back a couple of days later, it had been replaced.

Oh yes, surrounded by wetlands hosting a ton of beavers... 6 Down... many more to go I guess.

This quote from the article Dave mentiosn (Huge beaver dam in Alberta) is a little daunting:
"They're invading their old territories in a remarkable way in Canada," he said. "I found huge dams throughout Canada, and beaver colonies with up to 100 of them in a square kilometer."


OMG! I haven't got any ideas on that size of a beaver problem. Six would probably be about the average size for our beaver colonies down here. If you harass them enough they usually pack up and leave pretty quick too.
