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.

#4 Horses – kill 20 people per year

If you have never been horse riding before and have a phobia about it, don’t worry, your fears are not unfounded because although horses appear to be gentle creatures who have an affinity with humans, they are capable of killing up to 20 of us every year! Quite surprising when they don’t eat meat!

This fatality rate is probably due to the fact that horses are prone to kicking, swaying and leaping up into the air when they are nervous and afraid, leading to people falling off and getting injured or dying. So, whatever you do, always wear your helmet and don’t frighten your horse!
