WATCH: Beaver gnaws away in Armstrong wetlands

A resident captured video of a beaver chewing happily in a local creek Friday

An Armstrong resident has captured up-close footage of a beaver that appears to be thoroughly enjoying a piece of wood in a local creek.

Facebook user Robyn Civic Adnoh shared the video Friday morning, taken while out on a walk with her dog.

Beavers don’t hibernate, according to Critter Control, but tend to be less active and keep themselves hidden in the winter. Though they spend most of their time in their dens when temperatures drop, they can occasionally be seen storing food nearby to prepare for the cold months.
