Unfortunately, after I put his photo on Facebook, the City fathers had him "removed."

Why would they do that?

Good question! I think they confused Beaver with Muskrats and didn't want the banks burrowed into. With the number of people that visit the park, maybe they felt that someone would get bit. In any case, I no longer post locations of where I find neat animals. So many people came to look at the Fox and Kits, that I have also posted here, that the Fox left the park. I am not sure that it is wise to let people know exactly where I find animals anymore. People just want to see for themselves and it ends up disturbing the animals that I just wanted people to appreciate.

Good comments w9trb, I do a bit of shooing in Africa (now & again) & some organisations even ask that gps data is removed from exif data, for that very reason. I had never thought of that aspect.

Great shots, I like that you can see his tail in the first one!

The tail was important to get because Beaver are rare here and I wanted whoever saw the photo to see for themselves the classic wide, flat tail so it wouldn't be confused with a Muskrat (which are common here).

Very nice photographs of one of my favorite mammals. I haven't seen one since I had the gear with which to photograph one. Truth be told, I don't even know if they are around here in Florida but I've seen them in Montana and Minnesota.

Small populations of Beaver have been in Illinois forever, just nowhere near where I live. That is why I was so surprised to see this fellow and why I posted him on Facebook. I did not expect the authorities to react like they did and won't repeat my mistake the next time I come across an interesting animal.

Perhaps they wanted to avoid damage to trees in the park?

You know what, that is most probably the reason. I couldn't see the forest for the trees!
