PORT ORCHARD, Wash. (AP) - A road crew in Washington state has had it with a beaver that persists in building a dam under a bridge.

Crews have removed a beaver dam three times since August. Each time the beaver rebuilds it near Port Orchard, on the west side of Puget Sound, across from Seattle. One was as large as 40 feet long and 3 feet high.

Kitsap County Roads Superintendent Jacques Dean tells KOMO (https://bit.ly/1vbOjUG ) that he appreciates how industrious the animals are, but the water threatens to undermine bridge abutments.

The county decided to spend $15,000 to hire a beaver trapper.
