Fur for the Future



In 1950, the Idaho Department of Fish and Game produced a film on moving fur-bearing animals around to maximize their production. Watching the beginning is amusing for how managing marten is somehow connected to the Turnerian view of western history that mid-century American land managers absolutely loved and used all the time. The second best part of this is wondering why these people are handing animals without gloves, which becomes an issue later in the film. But the real highlight is watching the state of Idaho parachute beavers from airplanes.
