Sea Creatures Attacking Humans Compilation

Damn…the ocean is just as, or can even be more scary than land

Animal attacks are an uncommon cause of either human fatalities or injuries. The frequency of animal attacks varies with geographical location. A person is more likely to be killed by an animal than they are to die from being hit by lightning.

Animal attacks have been identified as a major public health problem. In 1997 it was estimated that up to 2 million animal bites occur each year in the United States. Injuries caused by animal attacks result in thousands of fatalities worldwide every year. All causes of death are reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention each year. Medical injury codes are used to identify specific cases. The World Health Organization uses identical coding, though it is unclear whether all countries keep track of fatalities caused by animals .
