Video shows rabid beaver attack father, 7-year-old daughter during kayaking trip

BUTLER TOWNSHIP, Pa. – A peaceful day kayaking turned into a scene ripped from a horror movie for a father, daughter and the family dog Sunday when they had to fend off a rabid beaver.

Dan Wherley told WPMT that, at first, he was excited to see wildlife during their daughter outing on Conewago Creek in Adams County.

When the animal started biting at his kayak, he knew something was wrong and yelled a warning to 7-year-old Layla.
