    Typical NYC-centric rodent's eye view;-> Fort Orange (aka Albany) has been a Dutch, then English beaver fur-trading post for more than 400 years. They all (French /Canadians, Dutch, English and Natives) came here to make fur deals, and put their goods on the boats south down the Hudson to NYC. The Albany Congress was held here and the Plan of Union, a forerunner to, and model for, our Constitution was presented here in 1754 by Ben Franklin a Colonial principal and while here, he worshipped at my church which is celebrating its tri-centennial this year.

    I was rather amused by that bit of unlikely animation, and I'd be hard-pressed to argue the point of comparison between us and them, re: overpopulating, using up our surroundings, etc. [huh]

    The "Let's just be friends" part is too funny. Humans aren't even friendly to dogs as a species, after all, only select breeds. "Man's best friend" my foot!

    Save the nutria, I want a stable population being trapped to drive down felt hat prices.
     
  12. haha I thought the animation was cute.

    beavers are also rodents....so all our hats are made from rats :eeek:










    Edit:Because I need to learn how to spell

    Hi I saw a great show about the Louisiana SWAT Team(s) going out at night with scoped bolt actions and killing off the excess population. Just wish they'd save the skins for more hats. Fun, good practice, and getting rid of an invasive species all at the same time.

    Hmmm, I wonder if BP "helped" with the Louisiana herbivore problem? Couldn't have hurt.
