Kitsap County crews try to oust persistent beaver

PORT ORCHARD, Wash. — A road crew in Port Orchard has had it with a beaver that persists in building a dam under a bridge.

Crews have removed a beaver dam three times since August. Each time the beaver rebuilds it. One was as large as 40 feet long and 3 feet high.

Kitsap County Roads Superintendent Jacques Dean tells KOMO that he appreciates how industrious the animals are, but the water threatens to undermine bridge abutments.

The county decided to spend $15,000 to hire a beaver trapper.
