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.

Putin was never handsome, but he looks worse after the plastic surgery.

I didn't know there were moose in Belarus?

Although, you could make a good poem out of that, maybe? ;)

"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."

Reply to original earlier thread...the other day, a little young raccoon went walking across my lawn/driveway in the middle of the morning...raccoon teeth are probably not as lethal as beaver teeth, but if you see any of these animals out in broad daylight, STAY AWAY!!

And keep your dogs in, too...even trained dogs....because even non-rabid large "rodents" will fight back if chased (possums, etc.)...take no chances!
