RCMP took a large rodent into custody early Friday afternoon.

Mounties were told a beaver with a minor tail injury was on the loose in a mall parking lot on Sackville Dr.

Officers were able to get the beaver into a bin and keep it safe until Hope for Wildlife arrived.

The wildlife rehabilitation organization will now check the animal over.

RCMP say the beaver didn't damage anything but did draw a crowd, adding, "Welcome to Canada, eh!"
