The Beaver in the Otter is the twenty-fourth episode of the fourth season of Bones


Jimmy 'Beaver' Bouvier is found strung up in the costume of his college mascot, an Otter. Booth and Bones must investigate whether he was dead beforehand or killed during a Middlesex University bonfire event. A possible motive is discovered from Beaver's fraternity brothers, who admit that Jimmy was running a side business and raking in the dough. Booth offers his brother help in finding a new job after he was dishonorably discharged from the Navy for actions related to saving Booth from the Gravedigger.
