Police sent an animal rescue team to the area, and the beaver was relocated outside the city.

The City Guard posted photos of the beaver to Facebook along with a poem asking "Mr. Beaver" why he chose to wander the city.

"Wasn't it better in the woods?" the post asked.

The beaver population in Poland fell to an estimated 235 in 1928, but conservation efforts have led to the estimated population booming to nearly 140,000 by 2020.
