A heron decided to fish from the island.

A kid went out to the island in a kayak to fish. He beached the kayak, got out and scared a beaver out of his den as he walked up the beach.


The beaver ran out to the water and started splashing around, slapping his tail on the surface, to draw the kid away.  It worked, the kid made his way back to his kayak and paddled back across the river.  As soon as the boat headed away from the den, the beaver quit splashing and disappeared.  Animals are so smart!
