The Chipman RCMP have taken down an outdoor marijuana grow operation in Chipman that was guarded with beaver traps.
The grow-op was found along the banks of the Salmon River in Gaspereau Forks.
The discovery came after an investigation that brought the RCMP to a spot next to the river that was difficult to get to.
The police also found traps surrounding the grow-op.
The RCMP said in a statement that whoever set them up used beaver traps to defend the grow-op.
"Marijuana grow operations pose a number of dangers, including booby traps" said Const. Justin Fullarton.
"The RCMP is reminding citizens not to enter a grow-op if they come across one, but to contact local RCMP or police to report the location."
The RCMP found 40 marijuana plants. which would have produced roughly 20,000 joints.
