• Short Summary

    Beavers at a beaver farm in Spofforth, Yorkshire and beavers that build dams for Uncle Sam.

  • Description

    Titles read: "BEAVER BUSINESS!"

    Spofforth, North Yorkshire.

    Various shots at the beaver farm of Mr Stillingfleet (sp?). Stillingfleet feeds the beavers and they run about and swim.

    Idaho, United States of America.

    Several shots show men laying a trap for a beaver near a beaver-built dam on a river. The trap snaps shut and the beaver is carried off to another area, where he will build a beaver dam in an area that has been damaged by silt. It has been discovered that streams with beaver-built dams are free-flowing and do not get clogged up with silt.
