Who are you going to call when beavers are behaving badly? Well, if you live in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Drew Reed is the go-to ‘beaver buster’.
Drew works as a wetland conservationist, helping to keep the peace between beavers and people. These busy rodents are incredibly industrious – felling trees and building dams are two of their favourite occupations. This can be good news in the wild, helping create rich habitats for a variety of wildlife, but in back yards it can spell disaster. A beaver is more than capable of bringing down a tree large enough to damage property, and their dam building can result in flooded homes.
Drew must do what he can to steer beavers away from trouble and stop their so-called bad behaviour.
