Actual beaver tail is considered a delicacy in some places.  I've never had the opportunity to try it.

 

 Despite the fact that we have a fairly flourishing beaver population in CT, basically nobody around here actually eats them...

Wait until the Food Channel finds out about them and makes them a "trend"....

On the flipside, at least my clothes match now, and the cloth mask is a lot comfier to wear, at least on the itchyness side of things - your face does get fairly warm fairly quick though.   I am now a masked beard that wears sunglasses, mwa ha ha ha ha! 

I actually had to give mine up because I couldn't stand wearing a mask over my beard, the itching made me want to claw my face off.....  I'm now clean shaven for the first time in a decade

Here’s a pic of my grumpy old man cat being thoroughly unimpressed by a deer in our backyard and a better shot of said deer

How do beavers taste?

 

Like chicken. :rolleyes: I know they're edible but it's something I've never tried. I think I have a cookbook with really old recipes that has something for beaver. One thing is that they are incredibly fatty. When I was young and trapped one winter we gave the first carcass to the dogs. Poor dogs and it was a good thing they didn't live in the house then. You may have heard the saying "like @#$% through a goose". Let's just say they didn't squat to do their business.

If I call correctly, in the 1700's the Catholic church declared beavers (as well as capybaras and hippos, come to think of it) to be fish, which allowed people to eat them during Lent.
