Top 10 most dangerous animals in Canada!

If you like this post or have something to say leave a comment below.

With local sightings of cougars in the local area where I live. I have decided to write about Canada’s top 10 most dangerous animals.

1: Moose – Many people get killed every year because of car accidents with moose. When a car hits a moose especially on the highway these large animals usually end up going through the car window and killing the passengers of the cars.
Moose are found in Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia. Prince Albert Island, Saskatchewan, B.C, Alberta, Manitoba.

#1 Moose

2: Deer – Deer kill people the same way as moose, but the likelihood of dying is slimmer as they are lighter and not as high as moose.
Deer are found all over Canada.

#2 Deer

3: Mosquito – With mosquitoes carrying diseases like West Nile mosquitoes are one of the deadliest insects in Canada. Mosquito’s have been known to carrying West Nile.

Most people infected with the virus have no symptoms or they have flu-like symptoms. Sometimes though, the virus can cause severe illness, resulting in hospitalization and even death so it is important to know the symptoms of illness related to infection and how to minimize your risk, especially if virus activity is reported in an area near you.

#3 Mosquito

4: Dogs – Many dogs are vicious and some are even trained to kill; you never know what could happen. There have been reports of dogs killing their owners while they were sleeping.
Dogs are found all over Canada.

#4 Dog

5: Wolverine – When I say wolverine I do not mean the character from X-Men. I am sure if he was real he would be dangerous. The character Wolverine came from up North Canada.
Wolverines are found within Northern Canada, there has been sightings near South East Saskatchewan.

Not this Wolverine!

The real wolverine will kill pretty much anything in its way. If you ever corner a wolverine you’re not going to live. The wolverine will definitely do some damage. Wolverines are known for their strength and sharp teeth, even bears keep their distance.

#5 Wolverine

6: Cougar – Not older woman who prey on younger men. This picture may make the cougar look like a cute little house cat ,but do not be deceived.

#6 Cougar

7: Grizzly Bears – Are stronger, larger, and not scared of humans they will attack you, if you are unprepared you will die. You can tell a grizzly bear from a brown bear because of the hump on the back of the grizzly bear.

#7 Grizzly Bear

8: Black Bears – Not as dangerous as as black bears black bears would rather run away, but they still will attack if they feel threatened.

#8 Black Bear

9: Polar bear – You have a small chance of running into a polar bear in Canada because polar bears live up north. The ice caps that polar bears use to hunt for seal are melting, therefore, polar bears are moving closer to humans civilization.

#9 Polar Bear

10: Prairie rattlesnake – The prairie rattlesnake is the only venomous snake in the Canadian Prairies;  the prairie rattlesnake has the longest fangs of any snake. If the rattlesnake bites a human in an area that is not known for having prairie rattlesnakes the hospital likely wont have an anti-venom.

#10 Prairie Rattle Snake

10.5: Scorpion – Hard to believe, but Canada does have scorpions. Though, this species of scorpion are not deadly. If stung by a Canadian scorpion the effects are similar to being stung by a bee.

#10.5 Scorpion

Bonus: Black Widow Spider (Latrodectus variolus) – The black widow spider will avoid people if they can. Only the elderly and very young usually die from a bite, luckily there is an anti-venom available. The average adult should have no complications if they receive a bite from the black widow spider.
