Homes for Wayward Beavers in Maine

We need homeowners in Maine to provide locations for safely relocating beavers!


Every Spring Maine Wildlife Management gets several calls about beavers showing up and causing problems. Spring is the time when two year old beavers are dispersing from the family unit. The parents drive them out of the lodge to find their own place in the world. Sometimes these beavers can show up in very unwelcome areas. Nuisance beavers are beavers that are causing a health, safety, or financial risk to people. Usually this involves flooding or potential road wash outs.


In situation where no beaver activity is tolerated. The individuals are removed. Sometimes this is done lethally, and sometimes they are relocated alive. One of the problems with relocating beaver is finding a safe place to put them. Beavers are deathly territorial, and will severely injure each other. Dumping a random beaver into an already existing colony of beavers is both cruel and unethical.
