    Didn't know beavers can be so aggressive. Best to leave all wildlife alone and keep your distance.

    I see beavers all time during the day by where I live. Apparently, Arkansas beavers didn't get the memo that they are supposed to be nocturnal!

    This story would have been funny except for the guy dying.

    I know now not to mess with one...

    Re: wildlife - healthy respect. I even give squirrels a bit of a wide berth, thinking perhaps the little critters will have picked up - somehow - remarks I've made in the past about them ("jumped-up rats with better tails," etc.) and plot revenge.

    I saw this on the Twitter, googled it up to find a better link, wound up with L.A. Times, thought it probably was authentic, then saw the Telegraph link with the original story (original in English, at least). One does not expect to see "Beaver 'bites man to death'" as a headline in Daily Telegraph! Red-top tabloids, yes. Conservative ol' Telegraph, #notsomuch.
