One house that I know of has Badgers on the Loose.
Our house, however, is infested with an altogether different animal: Beavers.
Observe a piece of evidence:
Note the crib rail…my beautiful, beautiful crib rail.
We decided that something must be done, and that perhaps the best way to fend off the toothy little critters would be to purchase some of these. So we did.
They didn’t fit on our crib rail.
Back to Babies R Us we went (a few weeks later, of course – after the damage to the crib rail took a drastic and sudden turn for the worse), where we got one of these. Much to our delight, it fit!
That was 2 nights ago.
Tonight I was out, and when I returned home I received this brief email message from my husband:
“W. chewed thru the gummy rail already.”
These beavers are relentless!
We are at a loss. Does anyone have any good suggestions for stopping these little critters? We are taking a look at one of these — has anyone used one before?
And while we’re at it, does anyone know of a good way to repair beaver damage on board books and onesies? We are open to suggestions.
These beavers are pesky, I tell ya…but they sure are cute. 🙂
