Cows and Spider Bites Kill More People Than Alligators

By: Beau Daniels

The attack of the two-year-old boy by an alligator in Florida is horrific. I can’t pretend to imagine what the parents are going thru. That event has sparked more fear of alligators. Mashable has posted some very interesting facts concerning the likelihood of being attacked by a gator, “If you’re not actually in the water, chances of getting bitten by an alligator are nearly zero.” There are 1.3 million alligators in Florida alone.

Since data has been collected beginning in 1948, 24 humans have been killed by the reptiles. More Americans die from spider bites, dog attacks and even cows. Many of us know that most animal attacks happen at dawn and dusk, “They’re most likely to take prey at the water’s edge in the morning or just before dark.” The little boy was attacked at the waters edge around 9pm.
