“It Was Like Watching a Horror Film”

No. Not an Obama press conference or Islamic militants marching toward Baghdad.

A vicious, horrific, MERCILESS…beaver attack.

Beaver viciously attacks kayaker

More proof that beavers are scarier than sharks: A kayaker in Upstate New York was hospitalized after being attacked by a beaver in Irondequoit Creek last week.

Michael Cavanaugh was knocked into the water when the beaver jumped out of the creek and started mauling him, biting him on his back and arm.

“I heard my name called out from the shop and I ran out the door to see a guy getting pulled into the water,” a trainer at BayCreek Paddling Center tells WHAM.

“It was like watching a horror film.” Cavanaugh was able to get to the dock, but the beaver wouldn’t let go, so the trainer started hitting him with a paddle until the paddle broke and the beaver finally retreated.

“He kind of disappeared for a few seconds but came back up so I hit him again,” the trainer says.

“It’s absolutely first of a kind,” says the paddling center’s owner, adding that “the beaver was upset for some reason, we don’t know.”

Probably got told he had to give back his ObamaCare subsidy.

Note to self: stay out of ponds.

    It’s a “first of a kind” only to that trainer. Beaver attacks are rare, but not unique.

    Ah, beaver attacks.

    Good times, good times.

    Here’s some Ivory, Mr. Bingley… wash that cranium out with soap.

    “Angry Beavers” would be a good name for a rock band… or a wom– never mind… Bad Julie!

  5. Mr. Bingley says:

    I’ve got some left over soap if you need it, Julie!

  6. Syd B. says:

    You’d have to be a real animal lover to be fond of the beaver. I hear that Rachel Maddow is quite the animal lover.

    Beaver and Maddow in the same sentence…I have to rethink this.

  8. Skyler says:

    I’d be clearing that pond of beaver vermin after that. I’m all for cute and cuddly animals, not for those that attack people.
