New Hampshire Man Traps 93-Pound Beaver

From The Eagle Tribune:


When Dan Siudut got a call from a neighbor about an animal that kept chewing through her electric fence, he didn’t know he was going after one of the largest beavers ever trapped in the country.

The average beaver weighs about 45 pounds. When Siudut, a licensed wildlife control operator, went to check the traps he’d set in his neighbor’s backyard pond, he was astonished by the size of his catch — two beavers, one weighing a whopping 93 pounds, the second at a hefty 60 pounds.

That is amazing! I thought my friends and I had taken the record. We ran over a 73lb beaver eating in an alfalfa field at night in central Oklahoma a few years ago.I wish now we had take it to get mounted. Cool story

This is definately trick photography. Look how much closer to the camera the beaver is than the man is. The closer to the camera the bigger the object appears. Saw the same thing done with a snake, and seaveral years ago a fish. A man-sized bass. Made the front page of the local paper. It was a couple buddies of mine. They showed me how they did it. Fooled the paper, though.


So...can you eat beaver?

Colter's Hell

The article said that the 30 year veteran of the fish and game said it was the biggest one he new of.
