WE SAW PARACHUTING BEAVERS OPEN FOR THE KINKS

In 1948, Idaho Officials Sent 76 Beavers Parachuting Into Idaho’s Wilderness

True Fact: The test beaver was called Geronimo.

(Thanks to Matt Filar)

Update: According to commenter "wiredog" (that is not his real name; his real name is "wirecat") an account of this historic event has already been posted on this blog. judi will of course be fired, assuming we can find out where she currently is.

I'm sure this has been posted here before. In fact, I think I first heard about this here several years ago.

Yep. If Judi hadn't retired, she'd definitely be getting fired:

Sounds like a practice drill for "Operation: D. B. Cooper".

Dam beavers!

Damn Beavers!, COOPER!! (Judi's in the back yard shoveling iguanas).

As God is my witness, I thought beavers could fly.

Oh, the humanity!

Training them to pull the ripcord without slicing it with their teeth or claws must have taken weeks!
