Angry beavers frighten bathers

Angry beavers have managed to successfully scare off the locals after taking over a bathing area in Lindesberg in central Sweden.

A mother and her two children could only look on in horror as a beaver went on the attack, biting the children's grandmother until she bled. The older woman was also struck by the beaver's tail and was left needing hospital treatment, Nerikes Allehanda reports.

There have previously also been reports of a beaver attacking a child on the same stretch of water.

"If you're in the water and see a beaver you should watch out. In the water they see you as their enemy and will attack," said Leif Linder, who is responsible for curbing the beaver population in the area.
