The photo was posted by the Salthaven Rehabilitation Centre in Regina, where RCMP Cpl. Jason Pinder (who is seen in the pic) has been a volunteer for about five years.
The orphaned beaver was rescued earlier this spring when it was about a day old. After spending some time at the centre, it was released with a new beaver family on Friday afternoon.
