Which are the most dangerous animals that Americans are scared of ?

In America, seemingly ordinary animals are responsible for the deaths of Americans every year for a variety of reasons. Many accidents happen every year due to deer, bears, horses, dogs, etc. It would appear that in the America in which the films “Jaws” and “Grizzlies” were filmed, people should be scared of white sharks and brown bears. However, most of all, Americans are terrified of very different animals

The white-tailed deer

The white-tailed deer of North America are at the top of the list. Without statistics, it would be difficult to believe this. It demonstrates that over the previous ten years, so many people have perished at the hands of sharks, whereas more than thousands have perished in “fights” with deer during the same time frame.

These innocent-looking creatures proved to be so “bloodthirsty.” Most of the accidents on highways caused by deer in the United States are caused by car collisions at night.

Horses come second after deer. Many Americans fall and are seriously injured while riding horses. According to statistics, over 800 riders died in 10 years, unable to stay on horseback.

Stinging insects

In fact, Americans are more afraid of stinging insects than alligators. If they had to choose the lesser of two evils, they would walk into the arms of a grizzly bear. Each year, hundreds of individuals die from stings from bees, wasps, and hornets due to overexposure to them. In particular, over the past ten years, more than 600 deaths associated with them have been noted. The most common cause is allergies.


In the US, even dogs are feared more than sharks. It was discovered that our canine companions kill bipeds 30 times more frequently than marine predators. It is true that the owners of the dog, who raised the “monster,” are to blame for the creature’s unchecked hostility, not the dog itself.


You cannot scare an Indian man with cows. However, in America, cows are openly feared, because, according to statistics, domestic cattle are more dangerous for people than sharks or bears. The average weight of a cow or bull of about 500-600 kg makes it clear that even a small push may well cost one’s life.

Despite the depressing numbers, most of the time it is not wild or domestic animals that cause people to die rather, it is people who drive faster than the speed limit, disregard safety precautions, or are provoked by animals.
