Beavers: Deadly Menace to Society

Okay, everybody knows that beavers are busy, but did you know that they are also devilish killing machines? Do NOT be fooled by their adorable little faces, their excellent work ethic or the delightful pastries named after their awesome tails. Beavers may look cute, but they are evil assassins: see the evidence set out below. Sure, most of the humans involved in these attacks did not actually die, but believe me, that is not what the beaver intended.
