Dan Wherley and his 7-year-old daughter Layla were kayaking in Adams County, Pennsylvania, on Sunday, when their trip took a dark turn. A large beaver attacked their kayak and put up quite a fight, according to the dad’s Facebook post, and the animal later turned out to be rabid.
Wherley says he, Layla and their dog were on the creek by their house, when he felt something grab his kayak. Wherley says at first he thought it was just his dog pulling the boat, but it wasn’t. “It was a big ass crazy beaver,” the father wrote in the Facebook post.
