Man killed by Beaver bite

Not me, the Beaver animal. Be careful with beavers and leave them alone. ... 8OnBbxSD3t

"A fisherman in Belarus was bitten to death by a beaver, and all he was doing was trying to take its picture, Sky News reports. The man spotted the beaver while fishing with friends at Lake Shestakov, but as he approached to take a photograph, the beaver bit him on the thigh. The animal managed to sever an artery, and his friends couldn't stop the blood flow...and two girls were seriously injured after being mauled by a beaver in Virginia last year."

I hope everyone in Belarus has figured out that you're not supposed to sit on the beavers while you take pictures of them.

I have suspicions that "approached to take a photograph" does not tell the whole story. Sounds more like a variation of "messing with sasquatch."

I hadn't watched that russian video of the angry beaver when I wrote that. Okay, maybe he just walked up to the beaver and it got mad and ran up and bit him in the thigh.
