Free Flowing - Beaver Battle Part 2

Yesterday afternoon a Spartanburg County Road Maintenance crew came out and removed the Beaver Dam from the culvert.  Here are a couple of before/after shots of our little stream.

Before (Same photo as posted yesterday)

After the Beaver Dam inside the culvert was cleared out

Before (notice the tree in the middle of the pond)

After (the tree is back on dry land)

It's amazing what they can accomplish in a such a brief time!

There are satellite photos of a beaver dam in Siberia that's the largest constructed thing on Earth not built by humans. Google it. I think it's over half a mile wide and has been under construction for several decades.
