Just couldn't resist guys. I think everyone remembers the beaver dam discussion? It was kinda funny except for the part where the little girl was hurt. Hope she recovers completely. This is not far from where my family is.

You just had to start the beaver thing again, didn't you?

Hay Murf I'll buy the beer and we can drag the beavers behind your boat. After this week you might need to drag me a few NM as well Laughing out loud. Damn those beavers, they just wont go away. Thats the final solution, a shovel. Too bad for the child. The shots will be far more painfull than the surgery.

The link that describes the attack isn't there and I didn't see it. So my best wishes for recovery in what ever happened. As I understand, all mammals can get rabies. It's not particular common in coyotes or beaver, but coyotes will occasionally try to take on an adult beaver--and usually loose. Big beaver can go over 100 lbs. and could do a lot of damage to adult, child or coyote.

On the current subject, and not to make light of the attack: Just the other day we were in the bush and I had to relieve myself. After coming back on the trail I said: 'Dang, there are so many beaver around here that you sort of expect them to leap out of the bushes and start felling saplings around your feet.' Carrying along all that home brew along might make increase the potential.

Doc, I'm in but tie the rope the little critters ...

I almost got attacked by a couple of rabid beavers too this weekend.

I was at the Poker Run on Georgian Bay with some buddies on their boats and there was lots of 'rabid beaver' around, of course we call them either 'Dock Fluff' or 'Cougars' normally, but it's allthe same I suppose...Rolling on the floor laughingMAO.


Seriously, that little girl has some nasty medical treatments ahead of her, luckily she will be alright though. Those are not animals to be taken lightly, I have seen the size chunks they can take out of a hardwood tree with a single chomp, I can only image what they could do to something as tender as ahuman body.

Best of luck.
