CALEDONIA , Wis., Dec. 18 (UPI) -- Police in Wisconsin moved a beaver to a new home after the animal caused a brief traffic stoppage.
The Village of Caledonia Police Department posted photos to its Facebook page, showing a beaver that caused traffic problems after wandering out onto a local road.
"It was the last thing I'd thought I'd see," Officer Andrew Gelden told The Journal Times. "But there it was: a beaver in the roadway."
Gelden, who is trained to deal with animals, was able to lure the beaver into his patrol car and drive him to a local pond.
The beaver was not injured, but was given a lecture on proper pedestrian behavior.
