One of the most popular videos shown during a wildlife showcase in Gresham last weekend was of a beaver rooting around in the soil.

It was digging with its front paws into the bank of Johnson Creek just east of Main City Park and downtown, and at the end of the clip it made a rude sound.

After the presentation, attendees at Wild in Gresham got to explore all sorts of items.
