Beaver continues to build dams while in rehab center

If you had to go to rehab, would you take some time off work for it? For this busy lil’ beaver, a stint in rehab didn’t slow him down one bit. Despite being under human care until he recovers enough to be released back into the wild and get back to work, he continues to train. In the video below, you can see him practicing building a damn at a doorway.

It’s admirable in two ways: First, we’re impressed he wants to keel his construction skills sharp when he could easily take some time off. Second, it’s thoughtful of him to consider the health and safety of his human rescuers by ensuring their rehab center doesn’t get flooded. And bonus points for his enthusiastic hop when rushing back for more wood.
