Beaver Herding Cattle is a Very Canadian Situation
Ranchers down here in the U.S. usually employ dogs or ride around on four-wheelers for their herding needs. Apparently in Canada they just use beavers.
Adrienne Ivey of Ituna, Saskatchewan capture a video of her 150 head of cattle being herded around by a beaver that had made it’s way into the pasture.
“These young heifers are kind of like a teenager,” says Adrienne. “They’re very curious creatures and they were just enthralled by this beaver.”

“When we first saw this we knew that people would get a great chuckle out of it because you cannot get more Canadian than that,” she said. “We talk about how awesome our Canadian beef is, but a beaver leading cattle around? It’s the most Canadian thing ever!”
