CHARLOTTE HALL, Md. (AP) — Even beavers are getting in the holiday spirit.
That's what one sheriff's office discovered this week when it spotted a curious beaver checking out Christmas decorations at a dollar store in Charlotte Hall.
The St. Mary's County Sheriff's office said the beaver walked through the door at the Dollar General on Monday, wandered into the Christmas section and knocked a few items over before being safely removed by animal control.
The animal was released to a wildlife rehabilitator, Sheriff's office spokeswoman Jennifer Stone said. The animal did not cause any property damage, Stone said.
The sheriff's office wrote on Facebook that as an officer "you never know what your next call may be."
