Beaver herds 150 head of cattle in Canada

Distillery offers bourbon featuring beaver secretion

A distillery in Maine is offering a new, limited-edition bourbon made partly from the secretion of a beaver's castor sacs, according to The Associated Press.

A beaver who happened to be passing through a Saskatchewan farm ended up herding 150 head of cattle, according to The Huffington Post.

The video, taken by rancher Adrienne Ivey, shows the cows keeping a safe distance from the beaver.

‘When we first saw this we knew that people would get a great chuckle out of it because you cannot get more Canadian than that,” Ivey said. “We want to talk about how awesome our Canadian beef is, but a beaver leading cattle around? It’s the most Canadian thing ever!”

Ivey says she believes the beaver was likely looking for a new place to build a lodge when it encountered the cows.
