A beaver got lost on Tuesday in Gauting - in an underground car park. Firefighters and police helped the animal back to freedom.
Gauting – The Gauting Police Inspectorate is slowly developing expertise in rescuing animals. After Gauting officials rescued a cat from a tree last week, they helped a lost beaver back to its ancestral environment on Tuesday. Around 10 a.m., the caretaker of a residential complex on Parkstrasse reported that a beaver had gotten lost in the underground car park of the apartment block.
With a laundry basket, a patrol held the exhausted animal. Forces of the Gauting volunteer fire brigade were able to "convince the animal with the help of a landing net that it first had to exchange the underground car park for a large blue transport box for its own protection," writes Gauting's head of department Andreas Ruch. Then the animal was driven to the Grubmühlerfeld and released into the wild at the Würm.
