Domestic Cats Not on the List of Deadliest Killers — 11 Comments

  1. What an interesting list! Cats aren’t even on it! Come on Woody where are you? Why not turn your attention to hating mosquitos seeing as they are top of the list of killers…lol

  2. well at least that good news that the cats arent on the wanted list anymore i alwys thought humans were more killers than kids. So amazing about the mosquitoes theres lots of those over here in nz along the beach and west coast areas they come out in the dozen thankfully im no where near there.

  3. I’m a little surprised that mosquitoes are #1 too and am very pleased that domesticated cats aren’t even on the list.
    My focus is always turned to those animals that kill without being provoked. And, that seems to boil down to humans as #1 and sharks as #2.
    I can already hear Woody’s idiotic argument echoing in my head.

    • We wait for Woody. The internet shark! Not really, more an internet jelly fish 😉 I suppose if you factored in the total amount of destruction of any kind including killing people, humans are miles ahead miles of anything.

  4. Proof indeed that cats aren’t anywhere near as dangerous as some make them out to be, bang goes another declawing excuse. I suppose the sheer number of mosquitos must help to get them to the top of the charts, followed closely by the sheer number of humans who are also handy at killing each other for any and every reason. Dogs, well I can well believe big things like our neighbour has could easily savage and kill a baby, child or even an adult. I hope Woody the Woodman sees this, it’ll take the wind out of his sails a bit.

  5. Excellent comparison chart that factually depicts the greatest murderers on planet earth. The joke is that its the “Mosquito” that takes the number 1 spot, beating us humans to the No 2 spot.As for house-hold pets its surprising that man’s best friend features very high on the list, much higher than the largest carnivores on planet earth. As for the cat, it features nowhere in the list and yet has been receiving bad press compared to the dog.

    • The 25,000 people killed by the domestic dog annually is shocking as you say and it supports the view that medium to large dogs could be too dangerous. After all they live with people and the less they are thoroughly domesticated they can be dangerous under certain circumstances. Whereas the domestic cat, at worst, can scratch or bite someone causing an infection.
