Quite literally, and not too figuratively, we all went out for a nature walk on Christmas Day back within the 300 acres at Pierson's bush and spotted the actual Christmas dam. Bank beavers are making this blockage, Shelly's dad figures there are about 5 or 7 of them, and they have been quite busy, as everyone is this time of year. They mostly go at the poplar tree, but do not hesitate to chew on other species as well. It is the municipalities responsibility to clean this up as the stream is part of its infrastructure to maintain.
We didn't see any beavers, but two animals were spotted running Christmas morning with nothing more then shorts and light jackets on.
