    Deadliest mamal?

    If you don't count humans then the Whitetailed deer is next if you count car wrecks they cause.

    Deadliest animal it's probably the mosquitoe.

    Whitetails kill more humans than all the other animals in America combined!

    There were only about 120 people killed last year in deer/automobile wrecks.

    I'll bet there were at least that many that died from diseases transmitted by mosquitoes. There were 100 deaths from West Nile alone in 2004. And there were 264 deaths from West Nile in 2003 according to the CDC. When you add in Encyphalitis, Dengue Fever, Malaria, and a few others it could pretty easily top 120.

    From what I can find in the US Deer usually kill about 100 people per year, last year it was 120. Mosquitos kill anywhere from 100-264 per year. Bees average killing about 50 people per year, they have killed as many as 120 in a year. Fire ants kill about 30 people every year. Snake Bits average about 15 deaths per year (with as many as 45,000 reported bites, but only 8,000 venemous)

    So depending upon which years data you want to use it looks like it could swap between Deer, Mosquitoes, and Bees for the most deadly animal in the US.

    I don't know, I think hamburgers are probably as bad or worse, so maybe we should blame the cows.

    BTW, Why is that cat pumping the stock on an AK?

    Where exactly do you live in Colorado!:supergrin:
    By the way fried chicken is not an animal, no more than hamburger is!
    Now if you had said chicken, cow, deer, mosquito, then you would have answered your question of what animal kills most people in the US.

    Well... I'm not sure if this is the answer but....

    Every year:

    Many wive's boyfriends are killed by jealous husbands. And sometimes husbands are killed by jealous boyfriends.

    Many wives are killed by the scheming girlfriends of husbands.

    Many husbands are killed in order for the wife to cash in a life insurance policy... and wives are also killed for the same reason.

    Many wives, girlfriends, husbands, boyfriends, commit suicide when despondent because a relationship or marriage isn't working out.

    Wars have been started over insults to wives and girlfriends.

    So I'd have to say that the animal that causes the killing of the most people in the world is.........

    The fast food chains are killing the U.S. not live animals, but it's the dead, processed ones that kill us the quickest.
