Answer To: What Animal is Considered the most Dangerous To Humans? 

For those who live in Alaska, you will probably know this answer right away. What Animal is Considered the most Dangerous To Humans? When we heard the answer it was a bit of a shock, and once explained it was understandable. 


Out of the animal list below, which is considered the most dangerous to humans? 






The answer is: 

The Moose!


There are more Moose in Alaska then the other animals mentioned. Even though they seem un-aggressive, they can be and will even charge if you get too close to their personal space. The advice Park Rangers share, RUN! if he or she charges at you. Most reported deaths and injuries have been caused by Moose.

And this is not to say that Polar bears, Grizzlies, Cougars and Wolves are not dangerous. Ideally any form of wildlife can be if awareness of their spacial ground and respect is not given.

Having a Moose on the loose? Run? ....This animal teaches "space" quite well!

Getting deep with the insight for what is the most dangerous animal to humans. I would also have to agree, in general, that is ourselves.

That makes sense that the moose causes the most deaths, if it is the most common among that group and most people probably assume its not as dangerous, they don't take it as seriously.

Yay.  I guessed right.  I had a hunch though as one almost started to charge me in Yellowstone when I was taking a picture.  I think I was around 10 or 11.

I guessed right!  It was just a guess though. I've never seen a moose except in captivity. I would be quite nervous to come up to one, especially now that I've read this!

Laura- This is so true- when I was vacationing in Alaska a few years ago- they shut down the hiking trails because a local moose had just had a baby and was aggressive.

Laura- I had images of Bullwinkle and Moose (too early for your time).  I don't know if I've ever seen a moose in real life but I now know to stay away from them.

One can learn something new every day! Fortunately, I don't live where I'm likely to come across a moose, wolf, cougar, or bear anytime soon. (And I like it that way!)

Laura Cerrano sure enough did not know anything about this! Though not sure when moose will confront me (or vice versa!)

Who can outrun a Moose?  Not me or anyone I know, except Larry, he is/was a track star!

Laura - the moose is quite a large aninal.   You don't hear about them here so I guess we don't realize how agressive they are.

The only wild animal I've ever come close to (from your list) would be a cougar. Those animals are not prevalent in my region. Interesting post, though. I'll be prepared if my paths ever cross with any of the above.

Yes, I did know this Laura, we have lots of wolves and bears in Wisconsin, but very few Moose.  But when we are working in MN or Michigan we watch out for the Moose.
