The Animal Most Likely To Kill You In Each State

Whenever people discuss the deadliest animals in North America they mention rattlesnakes, bears and, if they're coastal, sharks, but nobody talks about the fact that deer kill more people each year than bears, snakes and sharks combined.

Deer-related deaths are presumably largely due to car accidents but the fact remains deer, and horses and cows for that matter, kill way more people each year than you'd expect.

These illustrated charts by Man Vs. Beast show us which critters kill the most people each year, as well as your odds of being killed by an animal and the most common animal-related death by state.

But these charts (inexplicably featured on a casino website) don't stop in the U.S., here's a chart that shows the world's deadliest regions and which critter is most likely to kill you in each region. Travel safe!
