Bitter Beaver Bites Man In Belarus
LAKE SHESTAKOV, Russia- A 60-year-old fisherman died after trying to get a picture of a beaver. On the way to his favorite fishing spot the angler saw the beaver and asked his friends to take a photo of the two of them. Just as the camera man was saying "cheese" the beaver grabbed onto the fisherman's thigh and severed an artery. Sergei Shilinchuk, an environmental official in Belarus said he'd never heard of a beaver killing someone but added, "The beaver has immensely powerful jaws; it can cut down a tree three feet wide, so keep that in mind when you get near one." Shilinchuk also said. "Apparently this guy has never seen a beaver's teeth, if he had he probably would have just walked on and gone fishing."
"I Tried To Rope A Deer"
ATHENS, Georgia- A story about a man who tried to rope a deer has been circulating on the internet for years and after reading it one local man felt he could do better than the author who comically detailed his failings at successfully wrangling a white tail. Don Gettlson is expected to recover from injuries he received after learning that it really is not a good idea to try to rope and control a deer. "Yeah, they are tougher than ya' think. Worst part is, my kids took pictures and now it's all over town, what I did."
Squirrel Starts Fire Alarm Fire
OSWEGO, New York- A squirrel, which had taken up residence in Vin Webber's attic, did enough electrical wire chewing to start his fire alarm on fire. "Little devil shorted out the fire alarm so the contraption didn't even know it had started a fire. You'd think before it became disabled it might have noticed itself being on fire but it never went off." Webber isn't ready to say his fire alarm was targeted by the squirrel but "The wiring to the smoke alarm is all he got after."
Daniel "Wal-Mart Parking Lot" Boone
BURRELL TOWNSHIP, Pennsylvania – A man is facing several charges after he went deer hunting in a Walmart parking lot. Arcangelo Bianco fired several rounds from a handgun at a 10-point white-tailed deer within the store’s parking lot, and then bagged the animal. Bianco was shopping at the store, and then saw the buck in the parking lot, hopped out of his truck and “began firing multiple rounds at the deer,” according to the Pennsylvania Game Commission who says Bianco faces charges of reckless endangerment, as well as several hunting violations, including hunting without a license, shooting on or across highways and unlawful killing or taking of big game. In his defense Bianco said "What does the 2nd amendment even mean anymore if I can't defend myself from a potentially charging deer? I figure that thing had it in for me but now he's the one whose cryin." Bianco's court date is set for May 1st.
Carp Causes Near Miss
SUONENJOKI, Finland- Mikkonen Bjorjnk, like many Finns, loves the full sauna experience, including the part where you jump through a hole in the ice of a frozen lake. And since several friends were coming over for a dinner party Bjorjnk wanted to enlarge the hole so everyone could jump in after relaxing in his sauna. Everything was going as planned until a large carp gave the back of his leg a hicky, which caused him to jump in mid downswing of his ax. "I short armed my swing and nearly shortened my putz," said the relieved to have missed Bjorjnk.
