So I am going out on a limb here. When I first heard that we had a broken beaver dam, my first reaction was, “What a remarkable coincidence that this happened less than 48 hours before our controversial weed treatment of Flannagan Pond!”
Though the words I actually vocalized remained civilized, the thought bubble above my head was rather colorful in its use of the English language.
Now that I have had a few days to think about this, and after having viewed photos of the incredible damage that came out of this event I will voice the following thought: Why would a series of dams survive heavy snows and spring thaw without issues, and then suffer a catastrophic collapse in the dry month of July?
Were the dams vandalized or is this an Act of God? If anyone has any knowledge of any activity that may have led up to this, let us know. This is going to cost the Town a great deal of taxpayer money to repair the road and it has destroyed a great deal of wildlife and recreational opportunities for all.
(I don’t think Steve McQueen did it, he’s one of the good guys)
