You’ve been warned. This isn’t the first time we’ve heard of an out of control beaver. Fortunately this guy made it out alive.
A guy, Michael Cavanaugh, in upstate New York was out for a day of kayaking in Irondequoit Creek in Monroe County at the Bay Creek Paddling Centre last week. Just a little man in a canoe out on a nice day. Out of nowhere an angry beaver attacked him attempting to drag him into the water. We’re not sure why the beaver was angry. Maybe it wasn’t getting enough wood? Anyhow, he was able to use force to drag the beaver to shore. It refused to let go. Fortunately someone nearby heard his screams and was able to rescue him by beating the beaver with a paddle.
He suffered some injuries but is going to be ok. Learn from his story though and beware of out of control beavers.
