TUESDAY, JANUARY 9, 1945 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE State Takes Action to Reduce Nuisance Damage by Beavers HIRES TRAPPER TO AID CLEANUP Also Extends Time of Validity of Permits Des Molnes, (IF)--A professions trapper has been employed and the validity of beaver permits has been extended beyond close of the trapping season to alleviate nuisance damage by b e a v e r in the northwest corner of Iowa, · Bruce F. Stiles, chief of the state conservation commission's fish and game division, announced Tuesday. Stiles said numerous complaints of damage to crop areas and isolated instances of damage to roads resulting from a back-up of water from beaver-made dams, led to both actions. Wayne Reed, Humboldt, who recently was discharged from the army, will trap beaver throughou the northwest section, headquartering at Sheldon. . ' ; Stiles said Reed's status was temporary and t h a t proceeds from sale of the pelts was expected! to cover the cost of his employment ·. Although the commission h a s issued 234 permits to trap beaver ;--enough, to take more than 1,00( animals--since last fall, fewer than 500 have been trapped Stiles raid. There are more extra-large traps available · this "· year, he added, but Ibwans still are inexperienced in the art of trapping beaver. Last year, the commission issued permits to take BBS beaver, but only 318 were trapped In some areas, particularly those in which public property has 'been damaged, much of the time of conservation officers recently has been devoted to trapping beaver. "We hired a trapper to relieve their burdens," Stiles explained. Since trapping through Ice is a difficult job, the situation probably will not be alleviated greatly ·until the spring thaws begin, he added. Stiles said the beaver permits issued originally for 60 days froir Nov. 10 to Jan.. 10, were being extended for as long as furs are prime. "The purpose of these actions is act to eliminate beaver from the beaver territory but to eliminate nuisance cases," he declared.
