I found this beaver eating some greenery during a fishing session in May last year. Had to crawl a bit to get near the furry one, photo was taken using the Canon S100.
Beavers went extinct in Sweden in 1871 (wonder how they found out exactly where the last beaver was living), they were hunted primarly for the castor sacs, extracting the castoreum. The hunters were paid well, a pair of castor sacs was worth two months salary during the 1830s. The people in Sweden were missing the beavers so much that we imported a few ones from Norway in 1922. It was a success and now we have a very good supply of beavers.
