Hungry Beaver Damages Upper Peninsula Utility Pole

A hungry beaver’s tasty treat created some work for utility crews in the Upper Peninsula.

Cloverland Electric Cooperative posted a photo of a damaged utility pole in DeTour on Facebook Friday morning.

Cloverland Electric says it looks like an overly eager beaver decided the utility pole would make a tasty treat.

According to the company, a beaver snacking on a utility pole is so rare that Cloverland’s director of operations said in 30 years he has never seen it happen before!

Cloverland says crews replaced the pole and hope the beaver has moved on to a tastier snack.

They ask anyone who sees a damaged utility pole to give them a call at 1-800-652-4953.
