This Tree-Chomping Beaver Should’ve Worn a Hardhat

A Maine beaver makes an epic appearance on this trail camera footage when it takes down a big tree and nearly pays the price.

Trail cameras can be worth their weight in gold when it comes to capturing things we can’t be there to see.

Case in point, this hard-charging beaver decided to take on a large tree in a Maine man’s front yard. Once the beaver made enough progress over the course of several nights, the tree came crashing down.

However, the beaver wasn’t ready when it happened!

Here’s the video:

I snagged some footage of our beaver taking down a tree in our front yard (Maine). These are some shots from about four hours of work over three nights.

You have to wonder how often that happens in nature. Hand it to Will Sturtevant for having his trail camera set up in the right place and sharing this unique video!

It always fascinates us that beavers try to tackle such big trees, but they can do some serious damage.

It’s just that when we see them almost get crushed, we wish they would wear a hardhat!
