Default Beaver and Shutter Noise

Before I burry my camera in 6 inches of foam, I was wondering if anyone knows of some way of dampening the shutter noise. The two shots are in sequence. I was about 60 feet away. Though not enough in it self to spook him, He clearly did respond to the shutter and become cautious. I go to great lengths to camouflage my presence and mask my sent, shutter noise is another hurdle that I need to deal with. Your suggestions are greatly appreciated. Cannon 5dI, cannon 400mm f5.6.

Yeah, you definitely got his attention!
Sorry I can't be of any help on the shutter noise though.

I wrapped the camera and lens in a large towel and a couple of fleece jackets. That damped the shutter sound to about half. I wonder if camera armor helps much?
