Local officials said they were faced with the "unusual sight" of the beaver on Monday and posted a photo of the runaway creature in town on social media.
You tweeted yesterday: “An unusual sight for one of our crews on the Monday night shift: Plymouth's resident beaver is on the way!
"He's apparently been caught since then and will be home for Christmas."
The male had been released into the wild in the Ford Valley in November - the first in the city in 400 years.
The Eurasian beaver was originally caught in the wild from the Tay River Basin in Scotland in late September and released as part of a nationwide trend to reintroduce beavers to the wild.

This happens after a 25 kg young male beaver was spotted in Italy for the first time in almost 500 years after walking across the border from Austria or Slovenia into the Dolomites.
The first indications that the rodent might be back on Italian soil were noticed by a hunting guide who spends his days roaming the mountains and forests.
Forester Reinhard Pipperger had noticed at the time when young trees had been felled along a section of the Sesto River in northern Italy.
The beaver was later photographed by a camera set up by rangers along the river.
