The Flying Beavers of Rondeau
It appears that a violent act of vandalism was caused by the famous Rondeau Flying Beavers, more widely know as Pileated Woodpeckers.
It is only circumstantial evidence, but based on the size of the woodchips, the damage done to the tree and the fact they nest nearby they are the most likely suspect and a warrant is expected to be issued shortly.
