Most dangerous animal in Australia

Graham Marshall - Tuesday, July 23, 2013

Any guesses for what is the most dangerous animal in Australia?

Which one kills the most people each year?

You might be surprised that it is not the snake, spider, shark, crocodile, or jellyfish.

All wrong?

According to the British TV show "QI", the number one killer is the horse  with about 128 deaths attributed to horses.
Cows = 20
Dogs = 12
Sharks = 11
Snakes = 8
Crocodile = 4
Spiders = 3
A cat = 1
