Default The most dangerous animal in the US (funny)

I was watching "Manswers" on the Spike Channel, and thought this was pretty funny. Now, I don't think I can ever go Deer hunting again... lol

http://www.spike.com/video/most-dangerous/2935541

On the show, the reasons that deer are the most dangerous animal is:
1) attacks hunters
2) lyme disease
3) deer/car collisions

ATTACK HUNTERS??!!! What?! lol
I can't say that I've read that anywhere. The only instance that I know of, is the video that circulated on the internet, where the hunter put scent on, and was attacked by a buck.

And a news article within the last couple years, where a man was impaled on an antler, on a Deer Farm during the rut, whom died.

Well anyway, I thought the video was interesting..

Perhaps Spike got their info from this:

http://www.reason.com/news/show/34914.html

"...No, there is another creature roaming America's woods that is far more dangerous than these big predators. The most dangerous mammal in North America is...Bambi. The U.S. Department of Transportation estimates that white-tailed deer kill around 130 Americans each year simply by causing car accidents. In 1994, these predator deer had a banner year, causing 211 human deaths in car wrecks.
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. Deer also carry the ticks that transmit Lyme disease to about 13,000 people each year. Economic damage to agriculture, timber, and landscaping by deer totals more than $1.2 billion a year...."

I think the mosquito has the deer beaten hands down as the most dangerous animal, not only in the U.S., but the world.
