Rabid beaver attacks New York man swimming in Pennsylvania river
I mean, it's not funny that the poor guy was bitten by a rabid animal, but really? Attacked by a beaver? The jokes just write themselves with beaver bites... And good on the Scouts for helping out - first for getting Brousseau to shore, and then dispatching of a rabid animal with nothing but rocks. It's good that they were able to stop the animal, both so it didn't attack anyone else and also to get the positive diagnosis.PINE PLAINS, NY – A Boy Scout leader from New York who was attacked by a rabid beaver while swimming in the Delaware River is recovering.The Poughkeepsie Journal reports that 51-year-old Normand Brousseau, of Pine Plains, was swimming in eastern Pennsylvania on Aug. 2 when a beaver swam through his legs and bit him in the chest.
Just be careful out there - you never know when you'll come across an angry, rabid, biting beaver...
That is all.
