Beaver kills man taking close-up picture of animal


beaver1A man has been reported to have died after he was attacked by a beaver whose picture he wanted to take as close as possible.

Wait a minute now, a beaver? Well, yes, a beaver indeed.

You don’t hear very often beavers attacking people and killing them, but this one probably got annoyed or threatened and fatally bit him.

The man is said to have spotted the beaver while fishing with friends at Lake Shestakov, in Belarus, but as he approached closer to snap a picture, the beaver bit him on the thigh. His friends rushed to his rescue, but the disturbed animal managed to severe an artery that his friends could not stop the blood flow, thus, the victim ended up bleeding to death from the inflicted wound.

Beavers are nocturnal, semi-aquatic rodents known for using their powerful teeth to chomp through trees to build dams on rivers or streams.

Incidents like this serve a lesson to people not to be too trusting with these seemingly interesting, furry and hard working animals.
