    Woman, 83, attacked by rabid beaver at Lake Barcroft in Fairfax County


    By Justin Jouvenal, Published: September 5

    The creature knocked Lillian Peterson off her feet as she was climbing out of Lake Barcroft after a swim. The 83-year-old woman twisted around to see what attacked her and noticed one thing: large, orange teeth.

    A 35-pound, 24-inch rabid beaver had bitten her on the back of the leg and would not let go, sparking an ordeal that lasted more than 20 minutes Tuesday evening. The Falls Church woman and a friend battled the animal with canoe paddles, a stick and bare hands as it came at them again and again. Peterson was seriously injured.

    Never ever handle an unfamiliar beaver!
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    I live in Fairfax County, and this was a big story. We consider ourselves suburban and almost urban, but we're surrounded by wildlife. It constantly surprises us.

    Not quite the story I was expecting.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days, it will be.
