my fatehr lives in shelley, in the middle of town, no river within 2 m iles and all the canals have been dried up for 2 months. trapped a beaver outside of its home its made under his shed. the thing was 40 pounds???? what on earth was it doing do far away from the water? it made a mess of his aspes and cherry trees, even destroyed alot of his conduit pipe. fish cop that came over was floored by it. its not small, im dumbfounded by it. closest "dry canal" is prob 600 yards away with a few blocks and tons of yards in between.

Great story Ivorytip. I have family in Shelley so I know exactly what you mean by it would not have survived the stroll through town. Special-op beaver 40 pounds of lumbering slap tail he may have had a future. Well hopefully the damage is minimal and your father can enjoy being the only man ever to trap a beaver that was squatting under his shed.

just 40 pounds; that is small. When i was running my wildlife management business in boise I removed one 71 pound beaver and one 65 pound beaver from a subdivision in Eagle along the river. Must have been grandma and grandpa.
Crazy stuff happens like a badger in downtown boise. haha
