    A beaver and her baby tried repeatedly to enter a grocery store in Eagle, Idaho, on Monday.

EAGLE, Idaho — A beaver and her baby have been captured after trying to get into a southwest Idaho grocery store and will be released into the wild.
An Ada County sheriff’s deputy responded Monday morning about 6 a.m. to an Eagle grocery store where the adult beaver and her kit repeatedly tried to enter.
The Idaho Humane Society arrived and captured the pair near a bin filled with willow bundles and turned them over to another group.
Animals in Distress spokesman Tony Hicks says the beaver and her kit will be released north of Idaho City in an area with plentiful willow and aspen bark.
Hicks says it’s not clear why the two left several ponds near the grocery store.
