BLADEN COUNTY, NC (WECT) - This week on WECT's Carolina in the Morning, viewers are daring reporter Claire Hosmann to try some rather unusual things.
The requests for dares went out earlier this month on the station's Facebook page.
The first dare to happen was beaver trapping. Viewer Jefferson Weaver submitted the challenge, so Hosmann went to join him one morning in Kelly, Bladen County.
Once there, she learned where to lay traps, what kinds of scents are used to entice the animals, and why many people find it necessary to do.
Weaver says the beavers are a pest to farmers, because they can cause the land to overfill with water. Coyotes are also dangerous because they will eat livestock and even go after domestic animals such as cats and dogs.
