The beaver from Belarus and other deadly animals
The death of a man in Belarus, who died from blood loss after a beaver bit his leg, highlights the dangers of assuming sweet-looking animals are harmlessThe beaver is an unbearably cute animal. When standing, it holds its little paws together as if nervous. When in water, it looks like a fat, damp squirrel. And when it eats, it nibbles like a naughty child.
