Remember the historic home in Duvall Washington where a beaver dam washed out and flooded the home with mud and debris. Well the beavers rebuilt and the county thought that they could prevent a new washout by installing a “beaver deceiver” which was a noble effort but the wrong effort. Last night there was apparently ANOTHER washout and some 60 neighbors rushed in to pack sandbags around the damage.

DUVALL, Wash. — A dam built by beavers has broken for the second time this month and caused a mudslide in Duvall on Friday evening. About 60 people rushed to a Duvall neighborhood to help save a historic home, roads and a highway after neighbors noticed mud and water flowing towards a family’s 100-year-old house.

I wished at the time that they had taken a look at this instead.
