Beware the snake, the spider, and the scorpion. But know this: You are much more likely to be killed by a bee or a dog.

Of the 1,610 people killed in encounters with animals between 2008 and 2015, 478 were killed by hornets, wasps, and bees, and 272 by dogs, according to a study published in Wilderness & Environmental Medicine. Snakes, spiders, and scorpions were responsible for 99 deaths over the eight years.

Using a database published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, researchers found that 72 people annually were killed by "other mammals," which includes horses, cattle, and pigs.
