Maybe you should explain what exactly a "mountain beaver" is, don't understand A beaver other than the kind that does eat trees.

A Green Gopher mated with a Northwest Mountain Beaver?

A Green Beaver....

Which would then overrun the planet because it wouldn't have any natural predators. Would you eat Green Beaver? Good way to get the Hooch. :help: :alien: :help: :alien: :help: :alien: :alien: :help: :help: :help: :help: :help: :help: :help: :help: :help: :help: :help: :help: :help: :help: :help: :help: :help: :alien: :alien: :alien: :alien: :alien: :alien: :alien: :alien: :alien: :alien: :alien: :alien: :alien: :alien: :alien: :alien:

no. but I have never tried, either. a small caliber would do nicely.... night vision and lots of beer could help after dark. good luck.

First you drink....alot. Then you get some wood (hard wood works best) The longer the better.Then you lay a wallet with about $100.00 in it on the ground and hide behind the bushes.You can figure out the rest.

GG, is this in a new development? If so, they will leave after a year or two as the development incroaches on their habitat. They don't get along with us verry well. Unless you have a very social critter it will leave as soon as human contact begins in it's habitat.
So are you having a problem with them? what are they doing? are you shure it's them? my ?

See it here:http://www.infowright.com/mtbeaver/Mountain%20Beaver%20002.jpg

There are two species of Mtn. Beaver on the fed's endangered species list in California. Never heard of them until I looked up the info..Looks like a WV muskrat had sex with a groundhog..
