Look out for angry beavers!

Rabid beavers bite folks in NE Philly: Officials
NBCPhiladelphia -

Wildlife officials are warning Northeast Philadelphia park visitors about rabid beavers after three people were bitten near a city creek in the past few days.

On Friday, Pennsylvania State Game Commission confirmed that a beaver captured in the Pennypack Creek tested positive for rabies.

The rabies confirmation came after two separate biting incidents earlier this week along the water between Bustleton Avenue and Ax Factory Road.
