Daily Mail UK ^

Posted on 07/18/2012 6:13:39 AM PDT by Perdogg

A crazed beaver attacked two girls as they swam in a lake at a popular beauty spot leaving them with serious injuries. Eight-year-old Annabella Radnovich and her 11-year-old sister, Alyssa, were playing with their cousins at Lake Anna in Virginia's Spotsylvania County when the 65 pound animal bit and scratched their legs.

I have nothing further.

An 8 year girl could very well weigh the same 65 pounds as the beaver. Pretty scary.

I was with a group of Cub Scouts who were menaced by a large sick-looking Beaver swimming in the Chesapeake Bay several year ago- luckily we got all the boys out of the water

the beaver continued to stalk them, lurking just offshore like a shark, following our group up and down the beach, until he finally gave up and paddled away

Never realized how BIG those critters can get, when he first swam up and bumped a kid we thought he was a Labrador retriever

Just guessing, but as hard as they work to build their dams and lay up food for the winter, I imagine beavers are pretty territorial.

Mother nature can be a mean mama!

I was thinking the same thing. Wonder if there are any baby beavers in that area, or if that beaver was pregnant.

I remember seeing a tree taken down by a beaver. The large size of the chewed out wood chips amazed me. Their teeth and jaws are powerful.

the girls' uncle returned to the scene and shot the beaver.

How can they be 100% sure it is the same beaver that attacked the girls? Considering the serious implications, if they were my daughters they would be getting their rabies shots by now.

A kid in our church picked up a straight kitten and was bitten. Even though the parents caught what the kid thought was the right kitten, the doctors did not take any chances and he got his series of rabies shots. I know he will never ever pick another straight animal again. But the most important thing is that he lived to learn from his experience!

They can transport George up there for a few days ... George will take care of the beaver, then the GatorBoys will retrieve George ... problem solved.

I once observed a pair of beavers swimming in the evening on the Black Warrior River adjacent to downtown Tuscaloosa. I was surprised they were around such a built-up area. They were making lots of noise slapping their tails on the water as part of their playing or courtship.

The movie version would portray the evil capitalist who owns the
lakeside bath salt manufacturing factory as the cause of the attack
of the zombeavers. In fact, just where the hell are the South Park
boys?

Slacking!
Obviously too tied up in lampooning the Florida Face Eater to worry about zombie beavers.
Or something.
But at any rate, they’re slacking!

Trapping is virtually non existent these days, the Gaia whorshipers stand in the way of culling. Rabies and parasitic diseases run through game populations.

EPA`s fault.
Beavers require CO2 to stay underwater for long periods of time.
Rising CO2 level in beaver blood is the triggering mechanism for telling beaver brains they need to surface.
