Having a beaver around your house may cause trouble but add more colors to your daily life. The reason is understandable. These wildlife animals live out their instincts. It’s like raising an “over” active and energetic dogs or cats.
Beavers have endless love for building a dam. It’s their instincts. They do this even when they’re living inside the house. They build it with any household items found in their path like pillows, tissue boxes, statuettes, metal frames, buckets, or plungers.
The rescued baby beaver named Beave in this story is no exception. The cub starts building a doorway dam in its rescuer’s home using random household objects.

Sharing about the process of rehabbing the beaver, Nany said: “The most challenging part about rehabbing a beaver is trying to teach him to learn all the things his parents would teach him. He does chew everything in the house, but with each rehab, there are unique challenges.”
