A case of stolen fence posts led Porcupine Plain RCMP officers to a beaver dam last week.
“The stolen posts were located in a beaver dam,” Const. Conrad Rickards said in a statement.
“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 (gone on arrival).”
Rickards said, jokingly, no charges will be laid.
“Who could really blame these little bucktooth bandits, considering the price of wood these days?” he said.
