Oh! Looks like our beavers approve of the watershed stewards hard work! Jon wrapped half the new stakes on friday, and they were quick to take a nibble. They’re all protected now!
The whole thing gave me an idea…now I just need some funky beaver folks to record this. (Ahem). Free beaver t-shirt for the artist(s) that give this wings! Pass it on. Hit play for some mood music while you read.
TREE WRAP RAPWhen the beaver starts a’chewing There’s a thing you should be doing If you want to save your treeline Better go and make a beeline For the wire Get a plier It’s not dire I’m no liar Do the tree-wrap, rap Do the tree-wrap, rap In the yard and in the garden Wrap it up and beg their pardon Not too tight, the tree will widen And it the wire it will tighten Wire thicken Not for chicken Paint with sandy Comes in handy Do the tree-wrap, rap Do the tree-wrap, rap Save your maple and your aspen Here’s the point that needed graspen’ Come protect the plants that need you And the fruit trees that will feed you I’m not crazy Don’t be lazy Stop your trappin’ And start wrappin Do the tree-wrap, rap Do the tree-wrap, rap!
Don’t blame me. You knew it had to be done.
Oh, and I know we’re all relieved to know there’s at least ONE stupid person in Sweden. The article is kind enough to say he wasn’t hurt. But mark my words, it will be everywhere as a life threatening attack tomorrow…
Pentti Savola, 58, was among a group of early morning commuters waiting to get a bus to work when the animal came up to him and bit his leg last week.
”It was lightning fast. I never thought that an animal that looks so clumsy could be so crafty,” she told Swedish news site mitti.se.
He said that he may have stressed the animal out when he tried to take a photo of it with his mobile.
But after his own stressful experience, he said he wanted to tell his story to warn children that they should not pet beavers without knowing more about the animals.
