Beaver Paddles Through Floodwaters in East Tennessee Town

A beaver took a swim on a flooded street in Tellico Plains, Tennessee, on Tuesday, August 17, as many parts of east Tennessee saw heavy flooding with the remnants of Tropical Storm Fred passing through the state.

Video by Tellico Plains resident Derek Sohmer shows a beaver floating in floodwaters before it dives headfirst to grab a piece of food.
