    Large beaver attacks man while fishing

    CUMMING, Ga., Aug. 2 (UPI) -- Georgia wildlife officials said they are searching for a large beaver that bit a man on the leg and arm while he was fishing on Lake Lanier in Forsyth County.

    Authorities said Russ McTindal was fishing Thursday when he saw the mammal, which he estimated to weigh 35 to 40 pounds, came at him quickly, WSB-TV, Atlanta, reported Monday.

    "When he got close enough, I whacked him a couple of times with a fishing rod on top of the head," McTindal said. "He even speeded up more. When he got to the bank, he come in chomping."

    "He was attacking me," McTindal said. "He was actually attacking me. I hadn't provoked him or anything. Apparently when I went down, he pulled his head out locked on to me."

    McTindal said he escaped the beaver and used his belt as a tourniquet to stop the bleeding.

    This is why we exercise our rights to carry sidearms even when recreating in nature. Nature doesn't like us.

    A few years ago, we paddled into a small backwater off of a larger lake, in the north country. We were hitting the weed lines with poppers trying to lure out a bass when all of a sudden, something hard hit the side of the canoe. We looked over the starboard side, and there was a large beaver looking at us. He remained stationary in the water for a good three minutes. Both of us had our paddles at the ready. He/she then slapped his tail and dove under. We thought it was best if we left this area. The bass were not hitting anyway.
