Meanwhile In Canada, A Beaver Blocked West Vancouver Traffic

No one knows why the beaver crossed the road.

The morning commute in West Vancouver, B.C. was tied up by a "slow-moving" beaver who decided to cross the road.

Traffic at 15th Avenue and Bellevue Street was blocked as police tweeted urgent updates.

While it's unclear why the beaver crossed the road, West Vancouver's police chief did clarify that it would not be ticketed for jaywalking.

The beaver was eventually "herded" by police and pedestrians to a nearby park.

Rescuers celebrated with poutine, maple syrup, and apologies, no doubt.
