Beavers are animals known for their wood-chomping prowess and recognize a good tree when they see it. So, it's no surprise that this little guy, who snuck into a retailer, was so disappointed when he saw the selection at his local dollar store. All of the trees were artificial!
Not everyone appreciated this fine wood connoisseur in the store. As the wild creature wandered the aisles, an officer from the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office in Charlotte Hall, Maryland arrived to escort him out. The beaver had moved on from the faux trees and was scouring the shelves for reasonably-priced holiday knick-knacks. Those, however, weren't to his liking either, so he flung the discount decor into the aisles. Soon after, the officer rescued and released him to a wildlife rehabilitation professional. We're sure he now has plenty of real trees to gnaw on.
