Shark attacks are pretty rare. In 2014, there were just three deaths globally related to shark attacks, and in 2015, there were six, which is about the average.
鲨鱼袭击人类是很罕见的。2014年,全球只有三例因鲨鱼袭击而死亡的案例,2015年有6例,和平均水平大致相当。

Wolf attacks are not common in many parts of the world where wolves live.
在世界上许多狼群居住的地方,被狼袭击并不多见。

A review of wolf attacks found that very few happened in the 50 years leading up to 2002 in Europe and North America, though there were a few hundred reported over the course of two decades in some regions of India, averaging out to close to 10 per year.
一份针对狼群袭击的报告发现,在2002年前的50年间,欧洲和北美洲很少发生狼袭击人的事件,不过近20年来,在印度一些地区发生过几百起人被狼袭击的事件,平均下来大概每年10起。


13. Lions: 22+ deaths a year
狮子:每年杀死至少22个人

Estimates for lion-related deaths also vary year-to-year. A 2005 study found that since 1990, lions have killed 563 people in Tanzania alone, an average of about 22 a year.
命丧狮口的人数每年都不一样。2005年的一项研究发现,自1990年以来,光是在坦桑尼亚,就有563个人被狮子杀死,平均每年22人。

Additional deaths likely occur outside of Tanzania, but it's difficult to find a concrete global number.
在坦桑尼亚以外的其他地区,应该也有被狮子杀死的人,但难以得出一个具体的全球数据。


12. Elephants: 500 deaths a year
大象:每年杀死500个人

Elephants are also responsible for a number of deaths per year - a 2005 National Geographic article said that 500 people a year are killed in elephant attacks.
大象每年也会导致不少人丧生。2005年刊登在《国家地理》的一篇文章写道,每年有500人死于大象袭击。

Far more elephants have been killed by people.
但是被人杀死的大象比这要多得多。


11. Hippopotamuses: 500 deaths a year

For a long time, hippos were considered the most deadly animal in Africa. Hippos are known for being aggressive toward humans, including tipping over boats.
长时间以来,河马一直被认为是非洲最致命的动物。众所周知,河马对人有攻击性,还会把人类乘坐的船打翻。
