Well, it took a few days longer than anticipated, but the dam was breached on
our pond yesterday, and the water levels are back to normal now. Presumably this
means the beaver was a little tougher to trap than anticipated. This is probably
to be expected when embarking on such a project during a
full beaver moon.
Here's hoping the beaver finds its new home equally appealing. I'm glad this
worked out before it became a problem for the ducks. They feed on the plant life
along the bottom of the pond, and I'm guessing the water being a couple of feet deeper
didn't make things easy for them.
