Stolen Bills a Soggy Addition to Beaver Dam

From Times Wire Reports

A bag of bills stolen from a casino was snapped up by beavers who wove thousands of dollars in soggy currency into the sticks and brush of their dam on a creek in eastern Louisiana, said Maj. Michael Martin of the East Feliciana Parish sheriff’s office.

The money was part of $70,000 to $75,000 taken last week from the Lucky Dollar Casino in Greensburg.

After a lawyer called police to say the money had been discarded in a creek, officers found two money bags in the creek and broke down a beaver dam in their search for the third bag -- and found the dam’s expensive decoration.
