That is funny. There are still a lot of beavers here (Washington state), and also a ton of nutria (coypu) which is a destructive invasive species from Argentina which the local people kill on sight.

Beavers do kill trees but they make good slaves too. Just don't let them work on your planted trees.
slavery is wrong, it makes you a parasite
It's actually more of a symbiosis.
