My cat would like nothing better than to kill and eat me. The only reason he hasn't killed me yet is because I'm still too healthy to be easily killed.

Having been trampled twice by horses, (very tame ones at that) I can attest to the fact that you can get hurt badly in mere seconds. I guess I am pretty squishy since my injuries have never been critical but it is damn scary being flat on you back while a horse is running over the top of you or has his hind foot placed on your stomach and you have to cluck to get him to move off.

Misc. The category of animals that cause the most deaths is "misc."

That is ridiculous.

simplicimus: Didn't read, but it's deer.


Heh. This.

I could see horses too, though. I rode a tiny bit growing up and then did the camp counselor gig for a summer; heard plenty of horror stories to know to respect those animals IMMENSELY.

/RTFA, it seems like Deer and Horses would both be in the same #1 Collisions-with-Hoofed-Animals and other mammals category.

FTA:

250: The number of deaths that resulted from interactions with dogs. About 885,000 people a year require medical attention after being bitten by a dog. Each year, the U.S. loses $1,000,000,000 as a result of injuries or deaths from dog bites. 34 percent of all deaths caused by dogs occurred to children younger than four. The victim is usually the owner or a member of the owner's family. "The sad part about the animal attacks is that it seems like common sense, don't keep children around potentially aggressive dogs unsupervised, but the reality is parents don't seem to appreciate how terrible a dog bite to a child's face can be."

So basically, if you have a young child and any kind of pitbull, rotty, doberman, or lets be honest - any large dog that isn't completely docile, you're a douchbag.

I am so sorry for your loss of Gus: I hope that all your happy memories of your time together help you through this difficult, awful time.

I'd have been shocked if it was crocodiles. There are only a few thousand American Crocs and they all live in southern Florida - the swampy, sparsely populated part.

Further, alligators aren't very aggressive. The typical person bitten by alligator story usually involves someone trying to feed them or taunt them and alcohol.

Sweetie, if it takes you 156 tries before you hit a deer, you might want to practice a few more days a week.

So true, I just wish more people felt like this.

#2. 509: The number of deaths that resulted from interactions with hornets, wasps, or bees. The yearly average was 79. 80.9 percent of those who died were men and 93.1 percent were people over the age of 35.

Good, I'm justified in running away from wasps like a sissy.

No, silly. Down comes from birds, not elephants.

My first guess was deer, horses etc, then i thought dogs. Then i read the article and was totally surprised bees / wasps ranked that high.
 
2012-07-05 11:00:49 PM  
I bet if we did more grizzly bear farming those numbers would be up .
 
2012-07-05 11:04:19 PM  
What about the dogs with bees in their mouth and when they bark, they shoot bees?
 
2012-07-05 11:04:35 PM  
The article totally missed deer. Apparently they don't count human deaths caused by auto collisions with wild animals in their counting.

However, deer have been the most deadly animal in the U.S. for many years.

Deer-car collisions increase
"The crash underscored an ongoing problem: The most dangerous animal in North America isn't the bear or the shark, but may well be the deer, and the deadliest time of year is fall. "

Same here. Something about the way they fly gives me the jibblies.
