The Deadliest Animals on Earth – Ranked

Do you know which animals are the deadliest to humans? You might be surprised! Some of them may lurk in your own backyard. Check-out this countdown of the most deadly creatures on the planet.

#3 Wolves – kill 10 people per year

Upping the ante a little, in 22nd place we have wolves who maul approximately ten humans a year. They have calmed down a lot though, because in previous centuries (eg. from the 14th through to the 19th centuries) they would routinely kill literally hundreds of human beings each year.

This would explain why wolves have played a central role as the scary bad guy in children’s fairy tales and stories throughout the ages. Just think back to all those horrendous illustrations of wolves with sharp, long teeth dripping with blood: makes you want to run away in fear! Yikes!
