On May 7th, Porcupine Plain RCMP responded to a theft call in a rural area where a person reported that some wooden posts they had piled on a property for fencing had gone missing.
Upon investigation, the posts were found in a waterway nearby, being used as convenient, pre-cut building material for a beaver dam.
“The stolen posts were located in a beaver dam,” explains Cst. Conrad Rickards of the Porcupine Plain RCMP Detachment. “A beaver – or beavers – helped themselves to the stash of posts and used them to help build a dam. I tried locating said beavers but they were GOA (gone on arrival).”
None of the beavers will face charges, he says. “Who could really blame these little bucktooth bandits, considering the price of wood these days?”
