EAGLE - Firefighters from Eagle came to the rescue of a beaver that got stuck between metal fence posts.

Photos posted by the department on Twitter Sunday morning show the trapped animal struggling to free itself. Firefighters worked quickly to bend the metal bars until they were wide enough for the beaver to wiggle out.

The critter then stood on its hind legs and posed for a picture - as if to say "thank you!" to its rescuers.
