Well, not really an attack.

LOL, Beaver trying to tell people something.

Now it just needs to take out a few cell phone towers.

I think the beavers are launching an informal protest at Telus for not using beavers in the Telus commercials that feature so many exotic animals from other countries. Can't say I blame them. After all beavers are the most iconic animals in Canada, so I'd think they'd have come first in the long line up of animals that Telus has on their commercials. Maybe they'll get the hint now.

Maybe the beavers were just trying to engineer an illegal hook-up for free cable?
