There are lots of ways to address beaver activity without killing these animals. As long as there is habitat and a food source you will always have beavers. The killing will never stop. Check out non-lethal options instead, way better use of time/money, plus no animals are killed. http://www.furbearerdefenders.com/campaigns/beaver-trapping

Beavers dams raise the water table, increase fish populations and boost game species. Even their tree-chewing stimulates new growth that becomes ideal nesting habitat for migratory and songbirds. Beaver problems can be easily and cheaply managed without trapping OR relocation. Considering the drought problems that Oklahoma has, it is hard to understand why you take such an archaic approach to your own "WATER-SAVERS". Heidi Perryman Worth A Dam www.martinezbeavers.org
