Do you know that a person is more likely to die by a dog or bee than to die by a snake? Yes. Surprisingly, a person is more likely to die than a snake, spider, or scorpion than a person's best friend.
According to a study published by Wilderness & Environmental Medicine, snakes, spiders and scorpions have caused 99 deaths in eight years. Wasps and bees have caused more than 500 deaths and 270 deaths in the same period.
According to statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 72 people die each year from other livestock mammals, such as horses, cows and pigs, and six are killed by snakes.
According to another study, nearly 100 children under the age of 10 died in a decade. It was even more fatal when a child under the age of four was bitten by a dog than when an elderly person 65 years or older was bitten by a dog.
Stanford University surgeon Dr. Jared Forester said that dogs that were raised at home were more likely to die. Therefore, parents who raise young children and dogs together should work with health professionals to avoid this situation.
As mentioned earlier, animals such as dogs, cows, and horses are dangerous, but even if they are not raised at home, wasps and bees that can be raised on farms are also dangerous to humans. Forrester said the price of anaciproxil, a drug used to alleviate allergic reactions, rose 400 percent.
The killing technique of the submissive animals
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), about 35,000 dogs die annually from rabies. Rabies viruses are transmitted to humans as saliva from infected animals, impairing the neurological function of humans and, in the worst case, causing death.
Rural communities in Asia and Africa are at greater risk of rabies. WHO urged local residents to carry out pets immunization. People who work closely with animals, such as rabies researchers, lab workers, animal disease control officers, and wildlife conservators, should also be vaccinated.
In the United States, cattle, such as cattle that grow on farms, take 22 lives each year.
The horse is also a potentially lethal cattle. According to the data, 20 people die each year during an equestrian event.
Insects are also scary. Every year, 53 people die from allergic reactions caused by insects.
Another deadly animal
Most people are more afraid of big, aggressive animals, but a fairly small animal can do terrible damage like a dog or cat attacking a person.
For example, microscopic animals such as tapeworms take 700 lives each year. Tapeworms are parasitic parasites in the body of an animal that lives in contaminated water. When an animal consumes tapeworms, the tapeworm grows up to adult size within the animal's body. Tapeworms can grow up to 15m and have a life span of 20 years. If a person eats vegetables or meat properly without eating or washing them, it can become infected with tapeworms. Symptoms include nerve symptoms, epileptic seizures, and intestinal infections.
Another deadly parasite is the ascaris fly. This roundworm is a common intestinal parasite found in poorly sanitized areas. Contaminated soil, undercooked food, or contaminated eggs can be infected by human ingestion. Symptoms of infection include vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and weight loss due to absorption problems. This roundworm causes mild symptoms and an emergency situation such as intestinal obstruction.
Mosquitoes are also deadly insects. Every year, about 750,000 people die from mosquitoes. Especially in Asia and Central and South America, many children die from dengue fever caused by mosquitoes. Symptoms include high fever, vomiting, headache, and joint pain.
Mosquitoes can cause malaria. According to WHO, malaria complication deaths are common in Sub-Saharan Africa.
