Beaver Problem in Beaverton in Beaver State

Posted: Updated:
 BEAVERTON, OR (AP) - Beaver dams are causing a problem in Beaverton, Oregon, the beaver state.

Busy beavers built a dam over the winter that is flooding Greenway Park.

Beavers have always lived in the park, but the newest dam floods a park trail.

The Tualatin Hills Park and Recreation District knows better than to dismantle the dam, because the animals would just build it right back up again.

The district will take public advice at a meeting next month on options that include building a new trail around the floodwater, building a bridge over it, or just making it a wildlife viewing area.
