Oregon City Police officers helped to guide a beaver that was on McLoughlin Boulevard to a nearby creek.
Late Thursday night, drivers called 911 to report a beaver on McLoughlin Boulevard near 14th Street in Oregon City.
Police officers found the beaver was confused and sometimes walking toward the headlights of cars on the busy highway.
Since beavers can be feisty animals especially when scared officers wanted to keep a safe distance. They had a pole with a noose on the end, which is normally for dogs, in the event the beaver tried to bite them.
But the beaver was docile. Officers were able to walk along side while they guided it toward Abernathy Creek. It took about 40 minutes to get the beaver near the water and when it saw the creek it picked up speed, jumped into the creek and swam away.
