This beaver isn't waiting to the last minute to finish his Christmas shopping. And it looks like he was trying to save a buck too.
The critter perused through aisles at a dollar store in Charlotte Hall, Maryland.
He was caught going through rolls of gift wrap and tree lights before someone called St. Mary's County Sheriff's Office about the disturbance. Animal control removed the beaver from the store and returned it to a wildlife rehabilitation center, according to the sheriff's office.
No injuries were reported in the extraction, minus a few crumpled packages.
