I stuff all the beavers I've ever known to capacity. 

Side note, those little dudes have some teeth.  Be prepared for rabies shots just in case.

If I had to catch a beaver, I would make one of those traps from the cartoons with a giant box propped up with a stick that has a rope tied to it, put some food under the box, grab the other end of the rope and wait patiently hiding behind a bush for a beaver to come.  I would also wear oven mitts and bring a giant comforter to wrap him up in.

I would also like to add that I am not a hunter and have only been able to catch cats with the above trick.

I thought they were small critter's like a chinchilal with a tail.  Then I saw one and they are the size of a medium dog and way 40 pounds.  Not to be messed with!

I think that I'm finally done laughing over the title of this thread.   That took a while.

Beavers are fairly large and strong critters.  They also go for the water and their nests pretty quickly if they feel threatened. 

Your best best to catch one alive is probably a large steel trap placed along one of their trails they use often near the water's edge.  The bad part about that is going to be renting or buying a trap, checking it daily, and dealing with the damage if somebody decides you are just a jerk environmental killer after a beaver.

Tranquilizing a smaller animal like a beaver is not a feasible option.  There's a couple of reasons for that.

I guess you could try to actively catch a beaver with a net, but they are pretty big, and you cannot exactly lure them with pieces of bread.  Beavers really do eat trees and plants.  Maybe if there is somewhere that the beavers are used to people you might be able to get close enough to put a net on one.  Of course, your next issue will be dealing with a very angry beaver you have netted.  Netting something that isn't a fish is not something for the timid (or even not so timid).

You need a live beaver for a music show?  I think your best bet might be getting a stuffed beaver and putting one of those dancing Santa dolls inside of it.

Well you try to grab the beaver by the tail. Then start swinging it into a pendulum motion so it start to relax. Finally you swing it against a tree or another hard object.

Okay now that I think about that that does sound creepy... Alright let me explain, that really is the advice from the US Army's old version of their survival manuel. That really was their advice for catching a beaver! However since he wants one alive I wouldn't recomend the hole bashing his brains on a tree thing!

 Thumbup  Good idea.

As for the 'other' variety: I hear they rent those too but I would not call that a 'good idea'.

I need a live beaver by March 19th. I live by the Missippi river, so i guess that would be a good place to look, but how does one CAPTURE one of the little buggers? Please help!

I remember when I was that age, setting deadlines to get a beaver.

In all seriousness, Newt is right. If there's some kind of wildlife rescue or rehabilitation centre in your area, you might be able to get a relatively tame beaver, and somebody who knows how to handle it. (Oh boy, does that sound bad TeddyR) Try looking for an organization that has live animals available for school appearances. It's going to cost you something, but it's the best way to go. The animal is used to captivity and used to being around people.

Don't mess with wild animals. They don't like being confined and they're not used to people - and these ones have teeth that can chew through wood. Besides not being safe for you, the animal is likely to be scared, defensive and not willing to behave the way you want it to, especially with a lot of people and noise around. And you really have to ask whether scaring the living crap out of a live animal for your entertainment is really what you want to do. Look for a tame one, or find a substitute.

The fact that I know you took this picture JUST for this thread is funny enough. BounceGiggle

Ok, lemmie xplain why I need this thing:
A few years back, some of my friends created this music show that showcased local bands and we had it in this guys basement. At the first show, there were only TWO bands thaT played: The Bad Cells and Atomic Beaver. they decided to name the show after the two bands' names combined, and the Bad Beaver was born. Weve been having shows ever since.

THIS time I've been cursed with trhe task of bringing a live beaver to the show, which now kinda sounds like a dumb idea. see, me and my friends are FULL of dumb  ideas, which usualy land us in the hospital or getting banned for life from Chuckie Cheese. But this just seems impractical. It'll pe all over the guys basement, and if we keep it outside, it's probobly not gunna get along with the guy's dogs. So, i dunno what Im gunna do. I hate leting people down, and its good to have crazy thngs happen at this show, but this just seems like too much of a hastle. Idunno. I think I need to talk to those guys an' see if we can figure out an alternative.

KYGOTC, in all seriousness, I suggest you sit these guys down and calmly and rationally explain why this is a terrible idea, and think up an alternative plan.  

Maybe you could just use a picture of a beaver?    Buggedout

Or dress up a dog, assuming it's a cooperative one. Heck, just pin a big, flat tail to the back of your own pants and tell them the beaver asked you to cover for him.

Or bring tails for everybody, and have t-shirts that say I GOT TAIL AT BAD BEAVER.
