“Chubby” Beaver Rescued From Fence

A fat beaver that got stuck in a fence has been freed by the soapy hands of a municipal employee.
The City of Hamilton says an animal services officer went to a home on Stoney Creek mountain around 12 p.m. on Tuesday where she found a beaver — carrying excess fat from hibernation — wedged between two metal bars.
The city says Sarah Mombourquette used soap to help the beaver wiggle through the bars.
It says the beaver recovered at a shelter.
It has since been transferred to Hobbitstee Wildlife Refuge in Jarvis.
The rodent needs time to recover from its injuries before it is released back into the wild.
