Eating with a beaver – OR – My lunch with Marcus

During a recent canoe trip down the North Saskatchewan River I had a rather interesting experience. While eating lunch on the river bank, a beaver swam by with a big-juicy-leafy-branch and I joked that if it wanted, there was a seat open by me. Well, it stopped swimming as I said this and turned towards me. It then swam at me and stopped about two feet away. We then ate our lunch in silence. Check for the video at the end.


Just swimming by with lunch when I called out. I hadn’t seen people in a couple of days at that point.

Bye Marcus.
