These are my beavers, I don't consciously collect them, they just happen to come my way, the one on the far right at the back I won in a raffle. The Canadian Mountie and the one at the front were brought back from from Canada by friends, and the other two are associated with Beaver Scouts. I have no house room for anymore!
About 15 years ago I acquired quite a large stuffed Beaver and it became our colony Beaver Scout mascot and we named him Boris. Unfortunately the older Scouts got hold of him and put a cord around his neck and hung him in the Scout hut with a note on him saying "who killed Boris?" Such a cruel thing to do, after rescuing him from his fate he disappeared never to be seen again.
We do not have real life beavers in England, except in zoos but they are trying to re-introduce them to remote areas of Scotland.
