A $25 offer didn’t get Horry County any beaver.

Now county leaders hope $100 will.

County officials recently increased the price for a slain beaver after the initial bounty program yielded no success.

“Hopefully [we’ll] get some more action on the flooding issue by having more participants involved in it,” Horry County Councilman Al Allen said of the beaver program. “We’re hoping that’s going to make a difference with some of the flooding caused by the beavers. … They cause a lot of flooding in Horry County.”
