I had an interesting Beaver sighting when one came through East City in Peterborough this morning (May 18) ~9:15 AM. I saw it in Curtis Creek in the area of Euclid Avenue and Trent Street. It was heading upstream. At one point, it noticed me, slapped its tail and headed underwater. Lucky for the beaver,  it had just rained plus the creek was a little deeper in that particular section. Otherwise, it wouldn’t have been able to hide. I left it to its travels after the tail slap. Hopefully it made it to its destination safely, without being interrupted by too many other pesky gawkers like me!
