Death By Beaver

Not a euphemism, folks!

No longer just the potential name of your future indie rock band, Angry Beavers are actually a thing now. A thing to fear! 

A man in Belarus learned that the hard way, when he spotted a cute, widdle beaver on the side of a road and stopped to snap a photo. Unfortunately, the beaver was a bit camera-shy (and rabid), so he went after the photographer's leg like it was a delicious tree trunk. The bucky-tooth beast severed the man's main artery and he bled to death. 

If that's not enough to convince you to be wary of beavers, the video below should just about do it. In it, a man pulls out his video camera to capture the majestic creature, only to run away screaming when it turns on him. The lesson here? If you see a beaver, the first thing you should do is run, not pull out your iPhone camera. No matter how amazing you think that little bastard will look in your Instagram feed.
