I don't post on this section much but I had a question about muskrats. Had one swim in front of me in the creek behind the house. Do these critters have a negative or positive impact on their environment. Just didn't know if I should get rid of him or leave him be.

They will if its close to the creek...Other than tunneling the bank some they ain't too bad...Unless they get the hydrophobie, then they get mean........
