A Facebook video posted by Adrienne Ivey shows the beaver walking along a field, followed dutifully by a crowd of Candian cows.

According to Ivey, young cows are “kind of like teenagers” and very curious, so they became enamored with the beaver, who was probably only out looking for a new place to build a lodge.

“There was about a three-foot space around him. They didn’t want to get closer than that,” Ivey told the CBC.

The video has earned more than 100,000 views, and it’s not hard to see why: Is there anything more precious than a beaver becoming a herd’s unlikely hero?

You might be right about that.
