A suspected theft in Porcupine Plain, Saskatchewan had a “dam good ending” according to the RCMP.

Officers responded to a theft call in a rural area on May 7, where a person reported that some wooden posts they had piled on a property for use in a fence 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.

“A beaver – or beavers – helped themselves to the stash of posts and used them to help build a dam,” Cst. Conrad Rickards of the Porcupine Plain RCMP Detachment. “I tried locating said beavers but they were GOA (gone on arrival).”

None of the toothy thieves will face charges.

“Who could really blame these little bucktooth bandits, considering the price of wood these days?” said Rickards.

Porcupine Plain RCMP has now closed this extremely Canadian case, they said in a release.
