The cartoon wasn’t called “The Angry Beavers” for nothing. These animals look cuddly but they want NOTHING to do with humankind. We begin today with a tale of beaver homicide in Belarus…
A fisherman playing his craft on Lake Shestakov came across a beaver, who was probably busy (as beavers are known to be) building a dam, when he asked his two friends to get a photo of him with the small animal.
According to SkyNews, the beaver was not a photogenic mood, because he jumped up and bit the fisherman on the thigh, severing an artery, and causing the fisherman to bleed to death before help could arrive.
I was a little leery of the story, thinking the man’s friends concocted the story to cover up a drinking mishap.
Then I searched “Angry Beaver” on YouTube, and now I’m sure this story is not only possible, I’m shocked it doesn’t happen more often.
Check out this Russian beaver, who tolerates the intruder for a bit, and then chases his ass down:
But the attacks are not limited to Russian soil. Check out this HUGE beaver holding off a man who’s armed with a shovel:
And how about one more Russian beaver attack. Notice how the beaver, again, is casually walking away when , the camera person gets a little too nosy. Go to 1:37 to see the beaver’s wild eyes prior to attack.
LESSON: DO NOT MESS WITH A BEAVER!!!
