Fan Fest Fuzzies: “Follow the Leader” Said the Beaver to the Cows

You might think that normally cows would be wrangled by a horse through a pasture. However, this past Friday, a most unusual ‘helper’ was found leading 150 cows through a field in Saskatchewan, Canada.

On Monday, rancher Adrienne Ivey told local radio station 980 CJME how her husband, Aaron, discovered that their cows were curiously huddled together and fixated on something rather than scattered about the field. He noticed that a beaver had unintentionally captured their attention and as it weaved through the field, the cows followed. She mentioned that most likely it was looking for a place to build its home, since this is common behavior during this time of the year. Ivey also stated that young cows are curious “kind of like teenagers”, which is probably why they couldn’t take their eyes off this little critter!

Watch as the brave beaver unknowingly plays a little ‘follow the leader’ with the herd of cattle!
