Wandering Beaver Causes Toronto Subway Station Closure

The entrance of the Royal York subway station was temporarily closed after a beaver wandered inside.

The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) explained that the beaver entered the Royal York Subway Station on Bloor Street, near the Humber Marshes after 6 a.m. EST.

The automatic entrance was temporarily closed after an “animal in distress” alert was issued. 

Photos of the beaver were shared on Twitter before animal control services captured it and released it to the wild. 

“So the beaver did hang out in the station for a little while but has since been removed safely. I can confirm the beaver is safe and sound, and we’ll miss him at Royal York,” said TTC spokesperson Hayley Waldman.

Another TTC spokesperson, Stuart Green, said that he believed that the beaver strayed inside because the entrance was between two local waterways where beavers are commonly seen.
