Beavers were quite common in this area, which is exactly what Jim assumed this creature was. It suddenly dawned on him that the animal must have gotten stuck in the mud, and it wasn’t able to get loose. Jim reached out to a couple of friends, and they came over to the creek to see if they could help free the beaver. But there was one important detail about the creature they were rescuing that they had completely forgotten about.

Beavers have come after humans before. They’re territorial, and this fellow was no exception. In fact, the beaver wound up biting Jim’s friend. Everyone immediately panicked. After all, beavers often bite someone when they have rabies. The team member headed to the hospital to make sure he was okay, while the other friends stayed behind to help the beaver. And Jim knew how to prevent the beaver from attacking anyone again.

Jim wasn’t sure how long the beaver had been trapped in the mud, but it obviously felt vulnerable and scared. He decided to cover the beaver’s line of sight. He did this by wrapping his jersey around the creature’s head. The beaver immediately struggled, but eventually, it calmed down. This allowed the team to work quickly to save it. But there was one issue. The beaver wouldn’t budge no matter what they did.

Jim and his team came up with an alternative plan to rescue the animal, who was submerged halfway in the mud. They tried digging around the creature, but they failed. Then, Jim realized that they’d need a pulley system. So someone grabbed some rope, which Jim tied around the middle of the beaver. But it wasn’t long before they noticed that there was one major hiccup in their plan.

What Was It?

Jim and his friends pulled, but the beaver wouldn’t budge at first. It was stuck fairly deep in the mud. Eventually, the team felt the animal pulling away from the mud. This motivated everyone to continue pulling even more. Then, with one final pull, the beaver was safely yanked out of the mud. Then, Jim stumbled after he wiped the mud from the creature’s face. It turns out, that the animal wasn’t actually a beaver!
