The Boy Scouts just can’t catch a break. Remember when chicken magnate Dan Cathy said that when we do things God doesn’t like, we elicit His wrath? And remember when the Boy Scouts decided they wouldn’t allow gay scouts?
I’m saying a big “hmmmm” whilst reading this story:
A Boy Scout leader was attacked by a rabid beaver while swimming in a Pennsylvania river. The beavering occurred when the animal mistook Normand Brousseau’s legs for tree trunks. Okay, so not really, but close.
What really happened was that the 51-year-old scout leader was attacked when the beav swam through his legs, and bit him on the chest, leg, arm, hand, torso, and, of course, butt. Must have been a gay beaver.
If there is a badge for beaver restraint(also referred to as “being a Boy Scout until your 20s”…see what I did there?) Brousseau should receive it as he forcefully held the beast’s jaws closed and tossed it onto shore where it was stoned to death by several Scouts. Yes, really.
It was later discovered that the beaver had rabies. Apparently in this week’s “no shit” moment, authorities said that rabid beaver attacks are uncommon.
Watch out for squirrels, Scouts, you never know when the next attack could occur.
