Because the beaver isn't just an animal; it's an ecosystem!

The Martinez Beavers

Day: November 6, 2012

DUVALL, Wash.—

A ruptured beaver dam caused major flooding Monday near Duvall, Wash., severly damaging at least one home. According to officials, a large beaver dam on a pond broke, causing the flood. Witnesses nearby said it looked like millions of gallons came rushing through in a manner of minutes.

Well this is one problem Martinez didn’t ever worry about, but it’s one of the only ones. The truth is that folks are worried when beaver dams break, and also when they don’t. I’m sorry for the home owners, but I’d like to suggest they consider the reinforcement suggestions used by NOAA in this film next time.
