Cool series of pics. I know it's not the same place, but that crossing looks very similar to a place I used to trap in South Carolina. It has been my experience that beavers quickly learn to avoid conibears after seeing a few of their buddies with one on their neck. Now a conibear placed at the bottom of a slide where they can't see it until too late is a different story...
 
Neat pics, but if you want to keep any of your fish, you'd better rid yourself of those otters. They'll eat everything they can get their hands on.

I have to disagree. I have had otters come and go now for 30 years and still have more fish than I can catch. I don't mind if they eat some fish or if the beavers eat a few trees. The problem I have with them is the burrows they dig in the pond dam. One day it will burst because of them. I have declared war on them even though I know they will keep coming back up from the creek that my pond drains into.

Very cool pictures and action. I had a similar series of pictures from a beaver slide a couple years ago. The otters did a number on the fish before we could get control of them. The camera got a picture of an otter wrestling a catfish down the slide. Check it out if you want. :cheers:

I remember that thread and decided to do one also because yours was so neat. My ponds are big enough that they won't clean me out unless their burrows bust the dam. Bobcats love to eat beavers and you had one hunting in your set of pics.
Is that a kitty cat or bobcat looking at the caught beaver in my last pic.

Gone but not forgotten
I have two beaver ponds on my place, and the dams broke, the ponds drained. The beavers have never built the dams back. Wish they would come back and go to work.
