Which State Has The Deadliest Animals?

Here’s a guide for your future state-hopping! Man vs. Beast created a map that shows the most dangerous animal in each state. Using the data collected by the CDC, the map actually displays surprising results. For example, deer are the deadliest animals in all of the United States. One would expect that the most dangerous animals in the U.S. would be the ones with sharp teeth, like wolves or snakes. Well, while deer do not have sharp teeth or talons, they harm people in other ways: 

[...]The majority of deer-related human deaths were actually car accidents where the animal appeared seemingly out of nowhere in the middle of the road, causing drivers to lose control of their vehicles.
Looking at the chart above, we can make a similar case for our runner-up deadliest animals: the bees, wasps, and hornets. Though these stinging insects are poisonous, the small amount of toxins that they pump out through their stingers are not enough to cause more than painful swelling in a typical human. However, those with allergies to these poisons can find these stings to be fatal, often needing immediate medical attention or an EpiPen to prevent the worst.

Homo Sapiens with CARS are the most deadly animals in all 50 states.
There, fixed that fir you. However, as Miss C posted a long time ago, mosquitos carrying disease are the deadliest animals on earth. Unless we ignore mass genocide in the 20th century, that is.
