World News Daily Report?  Funny story, but you might be able to make it up, judging by some of the stuff in the sidebar.

I wasn't being coy, it's a true story.  I've shared it on HW before a long time ago.

Just playing with you and the premise that you can't make this stuff up, by making stuff up.  I'll delete it.

Gotta hear the story!

I used to do a lot of spear gun hunting for trash fish in the rivers around here, one day I got between 2 paired beaver.  One was up river of me around a sharp bend the other was down river and I was hunting the area between them.  I got down current a ways and was working my way back up the bend in a slow deep spot, as I was scanning the bottom I seen my shadow and all the sudden another shadow approached prompting me to look up.  I looked up and was face to face with a beaver, it was inches at best, I kept my mask and eyes below the water line and spear aimed at its belly, I was wondering if it was going to bite my skull or what, it stayed there for what felt like minutes (but it was probably only 5-10 seconds) just inches from my skull..ya and I have brown hair, and the snorkel probably resembled a stick so I could see the confusion of that beaver thinking my skull was it's mate.  I brought my spear up to its belly but didn't pull the trigger, instead I jumped up in the water as far as I could with a kick from my fins and threw my arms up high and yelled something at it, I can't recall the word and they wouldn't be forum friendly...   

I had no idea a beaver could squeal, but it let out a squeal, slapped it's tail and dove.   Fast as I was under water that beaver left me in it's wake and disappeared in a hole in the bank just under the water.  I was glad it didn't climb on my head, so you can imagine what everyone say's when I tell that story over a beer.

I'd just dump the whole thread in the trash if it's full of posts that violate forum rules, there's no way would I go though it all on my wages.


I'll go check a few pages worth, thanks for the heads up  :tup:

KFhunter, You are fortunate it was a Beaver and not an Otter.

Otter attacks swimmers in Pilchuck River
Originally published August 1, 2014 at 9:16 pm

A river otter attacked an 8-year-old boy and his grandmother as they were swimming in the Pilchuck River at a park in the Snohomish County town of Machias.

The boy's mother, Tabitha Moser, told KING that she saw the 4-foot otter attack her son Thursday morning at Lake Connor Park. She says her mother saved him.

The grandmother was treated at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle and the boy at Providence Medical Center in Everett. The Everett Herald reported that the grandmother suffered a serious injury to the eye, and the boy needed stitches.

Moser says she heard her son screaming and saw the otter on top of his head. She says the otter continued to bite her mother as they left the water.

Moser says the otter stood on its hind legs and looked at them as if to say, "Don't come in here."

The paper reported that the otter was not captured.  A biologist told the paper that once an animal attacks a human it becomes "hard to justify setting it free again."

KFhunter, You may have had a different outcome, after reading this story........
By YURAS KARMANAUThe Associated Press
Wed., May 29, 2013
The fisherman wanted his photo shot with a beaver. The beaver had other ideas: It attacked the 60-year-old man with razor-sharp teeth, slicing an artery and causing him to bleed to death.

It was the most serious in a string of beaver attacks on humans in Belarus, as the rodents have turned increasingly aggressive when confronted by humans after wandering near homes, shops and schools.

ďThe character of the wound was totally shocking for us medical professionals,Ē recalled village doctor Leonty Sulim. ďWe had never run into anything like this before.Ē

Once hunted nearly to extinction in Europe, beavers have made a comeback as hunting was banned or restricted and new populations were introduced. In Belarus, a former Soviet nation between Russia and Poland, the beaver population has tripled in the past decade to an estimated 80,000, according to wildlife experts. That has caused beavers increasingly to wander into populated areas, creating more grounds for conflict.

The Belarusian emergency services said that this year, for the first time, they have received a rash of reports of aggression by beavers, which can weigh up to 30 kilograms and stand about a metre high. Officials have responded to some calls by sending out crews to drive away the animals, often by spraying them with water from a fire-hose.

The fisherman, who has not been named at the request of his family, was driving with friends toward the Shestakovskoye lake, west of the capital, Minsk, when he spotted the beaver along the side of the road and stopped the car. As he tried to grab the animal, it bit him several times. One of the bites hit a major artery in the leg, according to Sulim.

The manís friends were unable to stop the blood from spouting, and he was pronounced dead when he arrived at Sulimís clinic in the village of Ostromechevo.

He is the only person known to have died from a beaver attack in Belarus.

Wildlife experts attribute the upsurge in attacks partly to spring bringing about more aggressive behaviour in young beavers that are sent away to stake out their own territory. Largely nocturnal, beavers can also become disoriented during the daytime and attack out of fear, according to Viktor Kozlovsky, a wildlife expert.

So many one liners, so many past warnings from the moderators. But I must say, this happened to me at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. Nuf said.
