An investigation into some stolen fencing posts by Porcupine Plain RCMP resulted in a perfectly Canadian explanation as to what happened.
Mounties received a call last Friday about the stolen posts and they were soon discovered.
“The stolen posts were located in a beaver dam,”Constable Conrad Rickards of the Porcupine Plain RCMP Detachment said. “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].”
The case is now closed with Rickards saying no beaver will be charged.
