Dolphins might be responsible for a large number of shark bites.  A 200 kg dolphin will kill more in its life than a 200 kg shark as they need to eat far more.  Dolphins have been know to ram people and bruises are quite common in places that let you swim with tame ones.

When the US parks department decided too many people where getting hurt they sent a letter out requesting places put up a warning sign.  The letter didn't limit the signs to just places where their might be dolphins but all parks.  Somewhere in Yellowstone National Park is a sign warning people that dolphins are wild animals and swimming with them can be dangerous.

None of those are the least bit surprising.

Yeah, they wage war and commit genocide. They're pretty messed up.

Everyone knows dolphins are murderous jerks that would be on par with humans if they had technology. Don't let their looks fool you, they would kill every one of us if they could.

I was kayaking one time through a marshy area. I pulled up to land to take a leak and noticed the trees rustling. I quickly got back into my kayak.

A beaver, 100 lbs if he was an ounce, came out of the brush. He didn't attack or anything but I doubt I could win that fight in a mucky swampy ground with no shoes.

Oh, they have technology. They're just willing to tolerate us as long as the fish keep coming. But the minute the planet is in any sort of danger, they skeedaddling out of here and leaving us to fend for ourselves.

Plenty of them are about outlier behavior.  As in "don't fark with wildlife, they are called wild for a reason".

The swans' warning needed to be stronger.  Those are fairly hefty birds and those wings are perfectly capable of lifting them into flight.  In other words, they are especially strong animals and you don't want one to beat you up with its wings (yes, people get killed).

You know those koala bear doohickeys that clamp on a pen? My ex started calling sex "koala time." It was cute but I was also, "You know those things can kill you, right?"

Really. Swans make geese look polite and peaceful, and they're bigger.
And hippos are well-known to be the deadliest animal in Africa.

Koalas? I've seen too much from Australians joking about how dropbears are deadly killers to know how much of the comments about them are actually factual.
