Dec. 1 (UPI) -- A Virginia animal shelter shared video of an escape-artist beagle scaling the tall door of her cage to escape the enclosure.

The Isle of Wight County Animal Shelter in Windsor posted a video to Facebook showing a beagle named Buttermilk climbing the door to her cage, which appears to be at least twice as high as the dog is long.


"For some strays, we can only assume how they come into our care... however lately Buttermilk has shown staff just how she probably ended up with us. Whoever adopts this cutie is going to need to keep a regular eye on her! She may be tiny but she is MIGHTY and has super climbing powers!" the post said.

The shelter stressed that "no beagles were harmed in the making of this video."

The post said Buttermilk has been moved to a different style kennel "to prevent her from continuous climbs and escapes," but she won't remain contained for long as she is scheduled to go home with an adopter after being spayed this week.
