A fisherman enjoying a fishing trip with his friends was savaged to death by a beaver.
The man was at Lake Shestakov in Belarus with two friends when they spotted the aquatic mammal by the side of the road.
As he inched towards the animal to take a picture, it pounced on him, sinking its sharp teeth into the man's thigh and severing a major artery.
His friends desperately tried to staunch the blood welling up from the wound but the animal’s bite and the man, from Brest, bled to death.
