Beyond Fear: Ranking the Most Frightening Animals on Earth (Number One Will Haunt Your Dreams!)

18. Horses: 20 people per year

The horses’ first reaction to threat is to flee, though, they will defend themselves when escape is impossible or if their young ones are threatened.

Horses are herbivores and can be able to form attachments with their own species and other animals, including humans. They are actually very gentle with humans.

Horses are usually used for human’s leisure activities and sports, which could lead to an average of 20 fatal accidents every year.


17. Leopards: 29 people per year


Leopards are widely found in Africa and Asia. They are adaptable to any environment like rainforest, grasslands, and woodlands.

Due to their stealth, humans are unaware of that they are nearby.

They are known for their ability to climb trees. They aren’t the fiercest among the “big cats” in the chain,

but about 29 humans are killed annually due to their fatal attacks.
