Parachuting beavers! A 14-minute “color film” (circa 1950 and complete with audio) produced by the Idaho Fish and Game Commission to show live trapping and transplanting of muskrat, beaver and marten.

This historical, educational documentary shows some of the history behind wildlife management in Idaho for habitat conservation and wildlife management.

This video was recorded by the Department of Fish and Game circa 1950. Due to the unique nature of distributing beavers to areas where their unique habitat building skills were needed, biologists came up with a way to move the animals.

This video also shows several other historical methods for live trapping animals for conservation work in Idaho.

No animals were injured in this video.
