LYNN, AR (KAIT) - They may look cute if you see one in the wild, but they can also be an inconvenience in today's world.

The Craighead Electric Coop posted on social media Thursday that a beaver chewed through a large tree, causing it to fall.

However, when no one is in the woods, a tree does make a sound.

The tree fell near some electrical equipment and caused a breaker to trip outside of the Lynn area of Lawrence County.

At least 400 customers lost power for a short time, according to Monty Williams with Craighead Electric.
