Reminds me of the Gypsy Rose Lee of the bird world.  Great shot.

When I started this thread back in 2012, it was not just for posting photos. I was hoping there would be other content that celebrated all wildlife, and our relationship with them.

Hope you enjoy this video!

Don't bother walking a mile in my shoes. That would be boring. Try spending 30 seconds in my head. That will freak you right out!!

My first guess was a coon.  But I don't get why a coon would drag a small tree across the road.  Second guess is a beaver.  I could see that happening.  But I can't quite make it out.  Maybe it's the rare beavoon.

Being in Lincoln county Mt.  I expected to see a bear.  Beaver dragging tree branches is not uncommon on the rivers but that is the first one I have seen dragging one across the highway.

I thought it was a pretty cool catch, too!  Probably "Only in Montana" would you see a Trooper turn around and use his light bar to act as a 'crossing guard' for a hard working beaver! LOL!

Unfortunately, most of our 'town beaver' got run out a couple years ago by domestic dogs and big cats.  Here's one of their better construction jobs (in Town):
