  1. "The beaver can create something out of nothing and are ecosystem engineers"…
    CAN WE MAKE A DEAL? Instead of having millions of third world "migrants" introduced into the West, can we take just as many beavers in their place.

    No welfare abuse… No drunk driving and crime. No destroying the inner cities..

    Tell the Globalists and elites who want to destroy the West, that we ARE willing to negotiate. We will take 2 beavers for every Third Wolrd detritus you take off our hands
