This is just an interesting photo posted by the WCSO today.

The caption read...Just another day at Walton High School where this little guy was found by some students trying to get into the press box. Walton County Animal Shelter is sending Animal Control Officers to assess and relocate the animal.

Yes, that's a beaver. There is swampy land back behind the high school which is probably where he/she escaped from is my guess. These mammals mate for life (unless a mate dies where they would take another) so hopefully they can get it as close to where it escaped from as possible. They are also good for the ecosystem because they create habitat for nesting wood ducks, migratory waterfowl, otters, turtles and fish.

This is also where I have seen the Kites (majestic birds in flight) flying from.
