    Default 6 ft. tall beavers?

    Please take a look at this picture. My dad and I can not figure out how the beavers we able to chew off the branches on the fallen tree. The only thing we can logically think of is that the we able to balance themselves and climb to the end and chew them off. However the chewing was down from the underside. Do they stand on each other's backs? This was a fresh cut and not done when there was 4 ft of snow on the ground last year. Any ideas?

    Default A really big beaver!

    That would be a sweet hide to tan! And sell
    Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.

    Default not enough gun

    Looks to me like you are sorely under gunned. Generally, where are you? The only 2 things I can think of is snow pack or high water, and I have never seen a beaver chew on a log like that while swimming.

    Water line could never get that high there, and this is freshly chewed, like within the month, We have only had 2 inches of snow so far this year... still puzzled............ I had thought that maybe another tree had landed on it and pressed it down but the dangling piece wouldn't be there. and there are no signs of another tree had been felled near it........

    Default Weight

    The weight of the tree probably had it lower to the gound in the beginning. That might have been a chew that was not finished. Then they started at the other end and eventually the weight loss allowed the tree to spring back up when the snow melted, sending it too high to reach.
