New Study Finds Sharks Are Not the Deadliest Animals to Humans

July 26, 2022

Turns out sharks are not the deadliest animals to humans. A new study shows only eight people were killed by sharks and only nine people were killed by alligators in the U.S. over an eight-year timeframe. Surprisingly, dogs killed way more people than sharks. In 2020, there were 48 fatal dog attacks. The second deadliest animals are bees and wasps, which killed 509 people. The top deadliest animals are, believe it or not, found on the farm: cows and horses killed 655 people.
