A fisherman in Belarus was bitten and killed by a beaver this week.
All he was doing was trying to take a photo of it, reports said.
The man spotted the beaver while fishing with friends at Lake Shestakov, but as he approached to take a photo, the beaver bit him on the thigh.
The animal, which can bite through trees, managed to sever an artery in the process, and sadly, the man's friends couldn't stop the blood flow.
Beaver attacks are not common, though they do occur, usually with rabid beavers, as recently reported in Russia, Virginia and Upstate new York.
We would not recommend engaging one under any circumstances.
