Danger On The Potomac : Attacked By A Rabid Beaver
While wading in the river I was attacked by a very angry and rabid beaver. He grabbed me in a beaver hug from behind in a sneak attack and started biting my lower back. I did not see him coming. I managed to grab it and fling it off as I fell forward into the thigh-deep water. I turned over onto my back and immediately had to start kicking the beaver in the face as he was laser-focused at getting to my face with his huge teeth. I was able to get to my feet and flee toward the shore with the stinking beaver in hot pursuit. The beaver weighed about 25 pounds, and he was all muscle and very determined to spread his rabies to me.
This video starts as I reach dry ground. He tested positive for rabies and I must undergo getting booster shots for my previous rabies vaccination starting tomorrow.
There is some cussing in this video. I cut most of it out...lol.

I enjoy metal detecting for historical items like gold coins, relics, silver coins, and other buried treasures. I also metal detect for gold and silver nuggets and even meteorites. I like to make videos that promote my choice of lifestyle that includes outdoor adventure,
metal detecting, yapping, searching for river treasure, SCUBA diving, exploring abandoned places, hiking, caving, caring for animals and pets, and observing the things outdoors that often go unnoticed by most people who are not familiar with outdoor adventures and nature. I keep my Youtube "Aquachigger" channel family-friendly and hope you subscribe if you like my style.
BTW, you can also catch me here, https://www.facebook.com/chiggsarmy/ ,but I may get a little edgier there. FB isn't a place for kids anyway...lol.
