Man tells captivating story about the time he was attacked by a beaver

It was late in the evening and Penn Powell was crossing a bridge on his way home from Fort St. John to Hudson's Hope, British Columbia when he spotted a beaver in front of his car. He slammed on the brakes but the car went right over the animal. Did he kill it? "Well, I wish I had've," Mr. Powell told CBC Radio back in 1997.
