Almost every Canadian knows that Vancouver real estate is shockingly unaffordable. And when it comes to the city’s hottest neighbourhoods, they’re pretty much no man’s land unless you earn some big bucks.
With all those regular folk pushed out, it was only a matter of time before the area started to attract a new kind of resident. The city’s Olympic Village is now home to an adorable wild beaver couple.
Yes, that’s right, two bucktoothed critters managed to secure an extremely desirable waterfront property you could likely never afford. But since the village’s gleaming condos weren’t quite suitable enough, the animals got right to work building their very own lodge from scratch. Here is what the property looks like now:
The animals seem to be fitting in well with the rest of the community, clearly evidenced from their neighbours’ social media posts.

In case you’re wondering, the Vancouver Park Board has already announced the beavers won’t be moved, and that they will be allowed to continue living in the village, according to the CBC.
Welcome to the neighbourhood!
