Beaver dams are causing a problem in Beaverton, Oregon, in the Beaver State.
The Tualatin Hills Park and Recreation District knows better than to dismantle the dam, because the animals would just build it right back up again.

This must be the companion piece to the penis thread tonight.
I heard they worship the beaver out in Beaverton.
I said it five times fast without stuttering.
This thread is about semi-aquatic rodents.
So is the other thread.

Get in touch with the New Mexico Game and Fish commission. They ca show you how to build a drain system the beavers can’t dam or block. I saw it in their magazine years ago, when they had a magazine.
They have to trim the beaver population.
Those big brown beavers can really be a menace. Seriously, I’m a bridge maintenance worker in a Western Oregon County. We have had multiple issues with Beavers clogging up waterways, closing off drainage culverts, and in one case completely destroying a road. Literally a beaver dam caused a main road to be completely washed out by flood waters.
A Dam Good Story:
“The animals would just build it up again”
A guy as old or maybe even older than ourselves is getting a checkup.
His doctor asks him, “So, how are you feelin’?”
The old timer replies, “Fit as a fiddle! I’m 89, I have a 17 year old bride and she’s carrying my child!”
Doc pauses and says, “OK. This hunter picks an umbrella out of a stand by the door, goes out into the woods and shoots a beaver that’s flooding the neighborhood with the umbrella, and the beaver drops dead.
“What do you think of that?”
“Well, I think somebody else shot that beaver! That’s what I think.” cried the old man.
“And that’s my point exactly.” says the doctor.
I love Oregon.
I’ve lived there, my family lives there, and I want to move back there, but Oregonians are STUPID!
Relocate the Beaver and tear the dam down.
Well, I’ve been there in Beaverton, and I doubt that there are very few of the residents there who have seen one around that town. It’s way too built up.
Ha! Ive seen that before. Not to get on a soapbox or anything, but beavers really do cause problems to public roads. There’s a HUGE oak tree within 5 feet of a medium traffic road that’s been completely ringed by beavers. It’s just a matter of time before it comes down. Problem is that it is in powerlines. We can’t touch it. We’ve told the electric company, and they’re too busy.
This was a south Park episode. A funny one to.
