Beavers Went Parachuting In Idaho In the 1940s and 1950s

A beaver gets out of its box after being parachuted
into a remote part of Idaho 50 or so years ago.  
The Internet is abuzz about some old footage from the 1940s and 1950s of beavers parachuting into Idaho.


Yes, about 50 years ago, Idaho would relocate "problem beavers" gnawing on peoples' trees were trapped, put on planes and dropped via parachute on other parts of Idaho, says Slate.

Seems they went to great lengths to move these beavers, but what the hell, the video they made of this back in is fun. It was recently dug up in Idaho state archives and shared on YouTube.
