As any environmentalist will surely tell you, trees are a precious resource. So you can imagine the horror when some activists in Poland discovered a neatly stacked pile of freshly cut logs in the woods, an action they considered a wanton destruction of nature.  Their dismay, in fact, led them to call the police and frantically report what seemed to be illegal logging activity. Upon their arrival, police found a small trail left by felled timbers that had been removed from the site.  When followed, the trail led directly to the culprits involved – which in this case happened to be a family of beavers creating a dam.  From all reports the environmentalists did not press charges against any of the furry critters.
