Beaver Bites Man To Death In Belarus Attack

The beaver pounced as a man went to take its photograph after spotting the animal on the side of a road during a fishing trip.

A fisherman has been bitten to death by a beaver after trying to take its photograph.

The man was on a fishing trip at Lake Shestakov in Belarus with two friends when they spotted the animal on the side of the road.

He stopped so that he could take a picture but as he approached the beaver it pounced on him, biting him in the thigh.

His friends attempted to stem the flow of blood from the wound but the animal’s bite had severed a main artery and the man, who came from Brest, bled to death.

Beaver attacks are rare and according to experts those animals that do go for humans are usually rabid.

However, they are not unheard off.

There once was a man from Brest
Who always loved ladies’ legs best
He was off and away with friends on a trip
When a beaver gave him a heck of a nip
Beavers like man legs — who would have guessed?

That’s SOME beaver...

Sounds to me like the beaver got “lucky” and severed an artery.

Yep, if he can take down a large tree, your leg isn’t going to be much of challenge. Moral of the story, don’t mess with the chainsaws on legs....

It was ONE bite and it severed a major artery.
It’s like when my mother’s 7 pound cat killed a large doberman; the cat got in a lucky bite to a major artery and the dog bled out in seconds. If the dog had bitten first it would have been all over.

The gods must be crazy - badger with incredible tenacity follows the man across the desert after being offended by being stepped on.

The man ends up carrying the badger the last bit because he feels sorry for it.

I think some of these ‘softball’ stories are thrown out here to ‘thin the herd’.

There are as many one liners that could arise from this story as there are mods, so the quips must be kept to a minimum lest the innuendos get ‘out of hand’.

I have tangled with some beavers that were so ‘bad’ I wanted to chop my own arm or leg off, the word coyote comes to mind but since on ‘good behavior’, will end this now.

there is no such thing as a bad beaver, dad. only ones that need a little understanding and attention. Lots of attention until they are happy, that is. LOTS.

And still they might be unsatisfied.

Just sayin’

Was the beaver doing something at the time that it didn’t want that photographed?

It probably had a headache. That’s the usual reason beavers don’t like being bothered any way.

I rarely am presented with a dog that has been bitten by a beaver that I can save. Beavers go for the jugular and carotids and are successful more times than not when they go after a dog.

The beaver’s bite had severed a main artery and the man, who came from Brest, bled to death.

Brest and beaver will kill ya, every time.

The beaver went out of control. He should have been a little harder on it before it got the best of him.
