A guy I did a nuisance job for this Spring has a neighbor that was also attacked by a beaver. Granted, I think it was justified attacking the guy. I was told he "found a beaver" while canoeing on the lake and put it in his canoe. Suddenly the beaver came to life and attacked him. He bailed out of the canoe into 37 degree water. He claims he barely made it to shore with his life. Now, I wasn't there, but I cant tell you the number of guys I have canoed with, whom, upon spotting a beaver or having one surface next to the canoe has suggested smacking it with the canoe paddle. So, I'm pretty sure how the rodent got in his canoe! One of North America's largest furbearers, have respect!

Some people are just like that! I know of people that swerve while driving vehicles just TO hit a critter. Maybe it makes them feel powerful or something.
