(DRYDEN, ON) – A very sad situation coming out of the Dryden area tonight. A video has gone viral showing a couple people, a beaver, and violence.
In the video, unknown people are seen attacking a lone, defenceless beaver. It appears rocks are being thrown at the beaver and the beaver flinches in agony.
It seems as tho the camera person says “he’s merked” which is slang for being stabbed.
Through social media commentary, it appears that some people are trying to explain this as acceptable behaviour claiming that this is what trappers do. No, this is not what ethical trappers do, ever.
Animal abuse activists are up in arms, and rightly so. This behaviour calls for outcry.
