If you find a wooden carving of a beaver, it probably belongs to a Beaver Dam resident, Beaver Dam police reported.

Two wooden carvings valued at $2,000 were stolen from the front yard of a local man sometime in the early morning hours of Aug. 21, according to a police news release.

One of the carvings, a Native American in full headdress, was found on Thursday in a ditch along a road in South Beaver Dam, and was returned to the owner.

The beaver is holding a sign that says, "Welcome to our Dam house."

The missing wooden beaver is about 4 feet to 4 1/2 feet tall and weighs about 300 pounds.

Police also found a large statue of a turtle when the Native American carving was recovered.

"We have no reports that we know of with this type of item (the turtle) missing," said Detective Ryan Klavekoske.

Anyone with information about the swiped beaver and turtle is asked to call Sgt. Eric Feucht at the Beaver Dam Police Department, 920-887-4614.
