A man was fishing with two friends at Lake Shestakov in Belarus when he spotted a beaver walking along the side of the road.
He took video of the beaver, getting closer and closer for a better shot until…
The beaver charged him and bit him in the leg!!
Those beaver teeth, the same ones that gnaw through trees, bit right through a main artery in his thigh.
His friends tried to stop the bleeding but the artery was completely severed and the man bled to death!
Beaver attacks are very rare but obviously can be fatal!
Check out the video (above) to see the man's actual footage of the beaver charging him in the deadly attack.

Can we get a woof, woof? New research has found that a man's best friend may be his heart's best bet too!
A study published in the American Journal of Cardiology suggests people with chronic diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure or high cholesterol who own pets have healthier hearts then those with the same conditions who don't own pets.
After monitoring the changing heart rates of 191 people between the ages of 60 and 80 over a 24-hour period, researchers found those with a pet had higher heart rate variability than those who didn't.

Whoa! This is crazy!
A New Zealand woman was temporarily partially paralyzed by a hickey on her neck given to her by her partner.
The woman went to the ER after experiencing loss of movement in her left arm while watching television.
Doctors concluded that she suffered from a mild stroke, but were confused as to how it happened. Once they found a small vertical bruise on her neck near a major artery, they concluded that the hickey had created a clot in the artery.
The doctors added:
"Because it was a love bite there would be a lot of suction. Because of the physical trauma it had made a bit of bruising inside the vessel. There was a clot in the artery underneath where the hickey was. We looked around the medical literature and that example of having a love bite causing something like that hasn't been described before."
Wow! Glad she's okay! Who knew a hickey could do such damage?
