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.

Like my daddy used to tell me...

Some days you get the beaver, some days the beaver gets you.

(alternate post idea: In soviet Russia, beaver eats you!)

Ya know, when first read this subject header, I figured the beaver had cut down the tree at the very moment the guy was taking a picture, and it fell on him.

I didn't realize beavers were sooooo territorial!

Here is a side-but-related piece of trivia. They are having a problem in Europe with North American beavers getting mixed into the European beaver population. The NA beavers are larger than their Euro cousins, so the NA males are taking all the Euro females for their mates. The problem is that the NA beavers and the Euro beavers are genetically incompatible, so these relationships do not result in offspring.

I bet a lot of you were thinking this would lead to some kind of joke or pun...sorry.
