Beavers vs. Pennsylvania…or Michigan

My former partner-in-porn Nicole forwarded me this juicy lil’ tidbit of woody action…specifically potential legal action by the state of Pennsylvania against the construction of a beaver dam. After a little internet research (you would double-check everything too if your Floridian grandma constantly barraged you with biased, level 11 pro-Israel propaganda), I found that this story is actually the combination of some wiiild imaginations and a much more boring event that actually occured. So much for my next blog post.

The thing to note here is that what I originally thought was the story was not so hard to believe – maybe because trying to fine beavers for building a dam would be just the sort of thing some stuffed-shirt state bureaucrat would do. And maybe I had also hoped that someone actually had the nuts to write that response.

  1. Hello,

    My name is Alicia Kinsey and I am a student at the University of Wisconsin La Crosse. I am making a website on beavers for my Biology class and I am wondering if I would be able to use a few pictures from your website. Thank you for your consideration!

    Sincerely,

    Alicia Kinsey

  2. Hi Alicia –

    Glad your interested in beavers! The photos on F that S that were not taken by me personally are usually credited to the website they came from. In the case of the beaver above, he came from the Illinois Dept of Natural Resources…so if that’s specifically what you’re looking for, I’d try contacting Wisconsin’s own Dept of Natural Resources.

    If there are other nature shots on my blog that you’re interested in, let me know.

    Thanks for reading!

  3. Hey Elle –

    1. My blog can be at times irreverent, and therefore does not exist to inform you.

    2. If it’s research material you’re looking for, try the library.

    Have a better day!

  4. Hey there that photo isn’t a beaver, its a nutria. It’s mislabeled. I’m trotting around the world trying to correct the mistake! You can always go to our website for real beaver photos!
