So this is only a 30 second video. But it doesn’t need to be longer because what happens in it is so nuts, which is that someone is filming a beaver, all like, oh, wow, look at this beaver, cool. Nice beaver. And then the beaver HOUSES the dude. I mean, you can’t even see anything. The beaver just charges and then there are all these horrible beaver attack noises. I am reminded of the scene in Grizzly Man when Werner Herzog says to that woman, “You must never listen to this tape.”
Beavers are apparently scary as shit — one just bit a guy to death in Belarus. And I have to say that even though watching this I had the benefit of hindsight, the beaver has a very ominous looking tail. It should have been enough warning.
