10 Things That Kill More People Than Sharks

 

Ever since I was a child, sharks have been generally portrayed as being absolute twats. These toothy, gobby little underwater fish-missiles could terrorize you the second your foot entered the water, would jump nonchalantly onto your boat and gobble bits off you, or baby ones would swim up your toilet as you sat there and put an end to future child support forever. It was movies like ‘Jaws’ (amazing) and media reports of gory attacks on surfers that helped perpetuate the myth, as myth it is as we’ll see here by looking closely at statistics from the USA.  

We chose the USA because as we all know, absolutely anything can happen over there and regularly does - Tide-Pod anyone?

 

 

Current figures indicate that sharks are responsible for an average of ten deaths a year worldwide.
