Growing up we had a pond in our front yard that was the domain of beavers. We all lived in harmony (except that time they gnawed the salty wiring on Dad’s Scout) and we learned they looooooved apples. So we’d scatter some each week near the dam, and they became so hotly anticipated that the younger fearless little guys would walk right up and tug on your pant leg. Eventually you could just hand them over. It was pretty adorable.

You don’t want to TP a beaver’s dam, they will drop a tree on your house.

Ah well, I’ll have to settle for dogs dressed as pandas…
