Transcript of Kaylee Hamilton and Jordyn Walker
Although it may seem weird, the white tail deer is the most dangerous animal in North America. "The U.S. Department of Transportation estimates that white tail deer kill around 130 Americans each year simply by causing car accidents" (Bailey). White tail deer are even more dangerous than bees, wasps, or hornets who kill around 58 people annually ("Forget Alligators, Snakes, and Bears- The Most Dangerous Animal in All of America is the Humble DEER, with Cows and Horses Not Far Behind.").
Deer populations have dropped to between 300,000 and 500,000 animals, by the early 1900s (Bailey). However, don't let this fool you. White tail deer do the most killing, compared to bears, alligators, sharks, and even rattlesnakes, who kill only 0.23 people a year (Bailey).
Even black widow spiders, who kill only 7 people a year, are less deadly than white tail deer ("Forget Alligators, Snakes, and Bears- The Most Dangerous Animal in All of America is the Humble DEER, with Cows and Horses Not Far Behind."). That's not all that says how dangerous white tail deer are. "There are about 1.5 million deer/vehicle collisions annually, resulting in 29,000 human injuries and more than $1 billion in insurance claims, in addition to the death toll" (Bailey).
In short, please be careful while driving. Yes, accidents including deer are not only deadly for the ones causing it, they can also be dangerous for you as well.
