A Canadian trapper having survived a brutal sexual assault by a 200-pound beaver is fake news. There is no truth to a report that an elderly trapper from Winnipeg had been sexually assaulted by a very large beaver but fortunately was recovering from the attack. If the story sounds wild and crazy that is because it is just that as it is false. Rather, the story is one sexual innuendo wrapped in a story.
Where did this fake news originate? World Daily News Report published the fake news article on March 6, 2018, reporting that an elderly Canadian trapper is slowly recovering from an attack by an incredibly big beaver that sexually assaulted him. You can read the fake news below.
Jackhead | A Canadian trapper claims he has survived a brutal sexual assault by what he calls the “biggest beaver he has ever seen.”
Bill O’Connor, 63, was checking his beaver traps near Lake Winnipeg when a large bear-like creature attacked him out of nowhere.
O’Connor, who first thought he was being mauled by a small bear or wolverine, soon realized it was, in fact, a very large-sized beaver.
“I had never seen a beaver of this size in my entire life,” he told local reporters.
The beaver, apparently bruised by one his traps, was extremely aggressive and even managed to knock the sixty-three-year-old man unconscious before he awoke minutes later.
However, there is no truth to the above story. What is the problem with the story to make it false? There is no legitimate news coverage of such a story having occurred. Furthermore, the Winnipeg Free Press did not report on any such incident nor did the Winnipeg Sun cover this news.
Additionally, the origin of the photograph in the fake news can be found here. Rather, the photo is of Gordon Webber who was covered in a story about being an actual fur trapper from New Hampshire. As for the use of a beaver in the story, a beaver in slang references a woman’s vagina.
Here is an example of someone sharing the fake news on social media.
