A search for a body near the arboretum this afternoon ended after police found comedy gold floating in Lake Washington.
Sometime between 2:00pm and 3:00pm, someone called 911 and reported that a body was floating amongst the lily pads in Lake Washington, on the northeast side of the arboretum.
Patrols officers and the harbor unit responded to the scene, closed off the park, and found the "body."
It took officers a little while to reach the floating "body" but when they did, SPD spokesman Mark Jamieson says they discovered the "body" was actually a "large, dead, decaying beaver."
