On the sidewalk in front of the old Rainbird Flower Shop was animal that was extremely frightened and possibly hurt. At first I thought maybe it was a sea otter because I couldn' t imagine what else it could possible be.
As passers-by began began to gather, I called the police to report that I thought there was a sea otter on the sidewalk. As more folks gathered someone more intelligent than I pointed out the creature's flat tail and said... it's a beaver.
A beaver! I called the police again claiming now that it was a beaver not a sea otter on the sidewalk. I didn't have my camera with me to take a photo to back up this story - but others including two police officers did see the beaver as did a number of people who happened by.
In the end, the beaver scurried back down a drain near Murray Pacific before Animal Control arrived.
What an AMAZING place to live!
