    "Halfway through, I had to get my phone out cause nobody's gonna believe this, a beaver biting my kayak!" said Dan Wherley, who was kayaking with his 7-year-old daughter and their dog on the Conewago Creek and, when things took a rather rare and terrifying turn.

    A relentless beaver was scratching and biting their kayak.

    "I looked, and it was a beaver scratching at it, and I thought, 'Wow, that's pretty cool, a beaver came up to us!' It wouldn't stop, so I used my paddle, tried to hit it to get it away, and it just wouldn't stop, wouldn't stop," Wherley said.
