Fisherman Killed by Beaver

a brown beaverA fisherman was bitten to death by a beaver as he tried capturing a photo of the animal.

The man was at a lake in Belarus with friends when they spotted the beaver on the side of the road. As he approached it, the animal pounced and latched at his giant teeth into the man’s thigh, severing an artery. Despite his friends trying to stem the blood, he bled to death at the scene.

Beaver attacks are rare as they are generally considered gentle creatures but whenever they feel threatened, they have been known to charge at humans.
