People, I've been boldly claiming for a while now that we do indeed have a beaver inhabiting our creek. My mother's all "You better call the Beaver Department and have them come get that beaver. Beavers will dam up your creek and then your land is going to flood. Beavers. Are. No. Good." But today after taking it to the web, I've got some bad news: It's a muskrat, which looks alarmingly like that creature up above. Bryan's been trying to get a picture of this thing for the better part of a week, but you get the idea.
Why the hell I ever thought that thing could be a beaver is beyond me! Christ.
