A fisherman in Belarus was bitten to death by a beaver as he tried to take its photograph.
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. (Thanks to news tipster Greg W)

In August that same year, a New York Scout leader was hospitalized after a beaver attacked him while swimming.
In July, a rabid beaver attacked three people in Pennsylvania.
And just this week, a video posted to YouTube shows a beaver in Russia attacking a man trying to video the animal.
