|Augh, dang!! I even had my long lens with me on Tuesday's dog walk, but he was too quick and I didn't get a shot.|
|I did have two other witnesses, though. Both my husband and our dog also saw him.|

I know what some of you are thinking - how could we possibly have a beaver right here in our subdivision?! Nutria maybe - they are invasive. But beaver??
|Oh hell yes!! They are here on the upper Texas coast, and their urban and suburban numbers are increasing. This is a pic I took a few years ago inside my favorite local park - which happens to be (brace yourself) *inside* Houston city limits.|
|Time plus evidence. If it does prove to be a beaver that has moved in with us, we'll quickly see damage done to the trees in the adjacent proposed dog park. Beavers are small furry machines of biological destruction. They will exploit any amount of water and any cluster of trees.|
