In a separate incident in New Jersey, a couple, Karen and Barry Rubinstein were strolling along Lake Surprise when they were chased by an angry beaver. They started running for their car, when Karen jumped up on a nearby bench, while the mad beaver continued to chase her husband along the shore of the lake, baring its teeth. The couple escaped without injury.
On the lighter side, in yet another incident, a pirate by the name of Peg Leg Lafitte reported being attacked by an hungry beaver while fishing off a dock on Buzzards Bay, Massachusetts. When interviewed by reporters, Lafitte reported “Thar I was, mindin’ me own business, fishing an’ sippin’ on a mug O’ rum, when I felt sumthin’ knawing on me leg. I looked down and saw this hairy beast whitlin’ away at me peg leg. So I jumped up, and kicked the beastie with me good leg, lost me balance, and fell backward, hittin me noggin on the dock post. When I woke up, me wooden leg was completely missin’.” “Evil creatures, them Beavers is! - I’d rather face a pack O’ wild termites than confront a beaver.” The beaver could not be reached for comment…..
