One angry beaver didn’t care for the selection of artificial Christmas trees at a local Dollar General – so he took things into his own hands.
Likely on the hunt for a tasty Douglas fir or a delicious poplar tree, this beaver was not impressed by the boxes of pre-lit holiday trees at this Dollar General in Charlotte Hall, Maryland.
Straight from a 2016 news report – this unique story has been coming up again in the news after getting a re-share from Mountain Mann Survival on Facebook and it’s too funny not to talk about!
A series of four or five photographs show the beaver rummaging through the holiday aisle in this Dollar General and leaving a path of complete destruction in his path.

“The beaver just walked right in through the front door,” Jennifer Stone, a public information officer for St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office told ABC News in 2016.
Luckily, after the workers got in touch with animal control, the beaver was able to be captured and late released to a wildlife rehabilitation facility where he found a wonderful new home.

“We’ve received quite a few unique calls in the time I’ve been here, but never one about a beaver in a Dollar General store,” Stone added.
