Ballard Beaver’s Little Secret
Out and about on Sunday I came upon a little park that runs down to the canal right behind the Ballard/Fremont Fred Meyer. I thought it was a cool little discovery, …then I noticed the carnage that had taken place there. The concrete walk that ran to the water was lined with a row of nicely kept cedars. Or so I thought. Then it struck me …more than half of the trees had been hacked down and carted off. What the heck?, I said to myself. Then I recognized the telltale toothmarks and knew that beavers had been at work.
Wow, right in our neighborhood there’s a troop of trouble-makers trying to pad their own nest. I wonder how much it cost to plant all those trees (I count 23 that were chewed down)? Here are some pics:
Where is all this wood going to? If you’re one of the beavers responsible for this, please leave a comment.
