PUEBLO, Colo. (KRDO) -- Why did the beaver cross the road?
Pueblo police can't answer that, but they at least helped one traveling beaver get across Highway 50 safely Wednesday afternoon.
Officers Jordan Klopp and Adam Quintana set up to block heavy traffic on the Hwy 50 bypass near Fountain Creek, and the department posted a picture of the probably confused beaver to Twitter.

Beavers are the largest rodent in the US, and they can be found along many waterways in Colorado.
