Rodent Mutation

If there ever was a Castor canadensis-themed item, this one surely belongs in the lodge (hat-tip Crooked Timber via Boing Boing's Mutant Mammal Monday). Especially coupled with this ominous and foreboding news item:
"Investigators blame a beaver for a fire that caused more than $150,000 damage to a cottage and outbuilding just north of Perth Road Village, Ont."
On a related thread (h/t Tania), if you ever feel like your work-day sucks, think about this job:
"A radioactive rabbit was trapped on the Hanford nuclear reservation, and Washington state health workers have been searching for contaminated rabbit droppings." 
Cue the requisite Rabbit of Caerbannog references...
"That's the most foul, cruel, and bad-tempered rodent you ever set eyes on!" - Tim

    Good Morning Jamie,
    Life too mysterious, don't take it serious!
