The Beavers Are Loose! Part 2

Sean Kinney

The 3 beavers, that were supposed to be stuffed play toys that were to be prizes for BBF winners but came to life and escaped in a terrifying event one would think that only Michael Mann could come up with... they have been spotted!!! They were first spotted building a sand castle on a beach (obviously these are urban beavers and don't know who to build a proper beaver home).

When they realized they'd be found the little one (again!) beaver-chopped (similar to a karate chop but ... different) a tourist and a took their canoe!

Later... a fisherwoman saw this from afar... obviously they have made their way to a friend's house! Big question: Where is the third beaver!?!?!? Keep your eyes open... especially for the little gaffer!
