After procuring an abundance of prime beaver pelts from the Teton Range in the 1840s, French-Canadian Fur Trappers were eager to implement drastic measures to ensure their fertile trapping grounds remained protected from late-coming beaver snatchers. Plans to build a wall around the mountains were never seriously considered, as even Fur Trappers understood disrupting natural wildlife traffic would ultimately result in disastrous consequences for the general ecosystem and harm their beloved beaver pelts. Most favored the idea of building an immense metal man, a Talos of the Tetons, to protect the fruitful mountain peaks, but robotics as a field was in its infancy and the imagined results can only be appreciated through puppetry.
