Beaver Kills Man Trying To Take His Photo: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A 60-year-old fisherman died after trying to take a picture of a beaver on a trip to Lake Shestakov in Belarus.


After the angler moved closer to the beaver for a photo, it grabbed onto his thigh and severed an artery. Despite his friends` attempts to stop the blood flow, the man died before they could get medical help."
