From the news story: <<"There currently is a beaver infestation in Union County as they no longer have a natural predator....[The trapper] removed the beavers by their normal means. I mentioned the removal in our newsletter and put the picture of some of the beavers on our website as I felt it was an issue that affected our community."
Under state law, if beavers disrupt the natural flow of a waterway, property owners are allowed to hire a licensed professional to trap and kill beavers year-round, according to wildlife officials.>>

If this is accurate, I see absolutely no problem with that.

Had the beavers been relocated, fellow beavers would not be as welcoming as some of you folks are imagining from your fantasy perspective: This is the warm welcome to be received from fellow beavers if they would have relocated: "Once a beaver detects another scent in its territory, finding the intruder takes priority, even over food.[48] Because they invest so much energy in their territories, beavers are intolerant of intruders and the holder of the territory is more likely to escalate an aggressive encounter.[47] These encounters are often violent. To avoid such situations, a beaver marks its territory with as many scent mounds as possible, signaling to intruders that the territory holder has enough energy to maintain its territory and is thus able to put up a good defense. As such, territories with more scent mounts are avoided more often than ones with fewer mounts.[47] Scent marking increases in August during the dispersal of yearlings, in an attempt to prevent them from intruding on territories.[47] Beaver also exhibit a behavior known as the "Dear Enemy Phenomenon". A territory holding beaver will investigate and become familiar with the scents of its neighbors.[45] As such they respond less aggressively to intrusions by their territorial neighbours than those made by nonterritorial floaters or "strangers".

Many of you folks have been detatched from basic human survival for so many generations now, that your perception of reality, and of right vs. wrong has been skewed from that of your forefathers.

I was going to respond with specifics of the incident, but then my mind went where it is most often, and I understood your post.

I guess you're right. Better just to kill them. We should probably go hunt them all down so none of them will ever have to deal with...nature.

Basic human survival? Did the article forget to mention that the beavers were attacking the Fairfield residents? Or were the beaver pelts necessary to protect the locals in their huts?

What is right about killing the beavers for a potential (not actual) problem?
