Your Chances of Being Attacked

Very, Very, Very, Very Unlikely

150 times more likely to be killed by the puma's prey (the deer)

300 times more likely to be killed by a domestic dog

500 times more likely to drown in your own bathtub

1000 times more likely to die from excessive heat/cold

2500 times more likely to die from an accidental fall

7000 times more likely to die in a vehicle crash

It is more dangerous to walk the streets in any U.S. city at night than it is to live and hike in mountain lion country.


"Deer, bees, goats and even jellyfish account for more human fatalities than mountain lions. For every person killed by a lion, 1200 are struck by lightening and 1100 are killed by hunting accidents.

But it is the predator that captures our imaginations."
