Beaver kills man in Belarus

Beltane                                                                            Early Growth Moon

I read this breathless title and clicked through to see what was going on.  The article refers to it as one of several animal attacks turned deadly.

Posting this because it illustrates wrong use of language, you know, like War on Terror.  How much different would your reaction to this be if the article had this title:  Beaver defends self against human attack.

These paragraph are about three-quarters or more down in the article:

“The fisherman, who has not been named at the request of his family, was driving with friends toward the Shestakovskoye lake, west of the capital, Minsk, when he spotted the beaver along the side of the road and stopped the car. As he tried to grab the animal to have his picture taken, it bit him several times. One of the bites cut a major artery in his leg, according to Sulim.

The man’s friends were unable to stem the bleeding, and he was pronounced dead when he arrived at Sulim’s clinic in the village of Ostromechevo.

He is the only person known to have died from a beaver attack in Belarus.”
