Dangerous wildlife. America.

Where in the USA would you be most frightened to step outside with your little pooch and head out for a nice long walk?

(I'm referring to animals -so no jokes about Baltimore or Chicago etc...I mean you can tell them, of course...you know what I mean).

I would be scared in the Southwestern deserts- desert animals are scrappier and mean. More likely to attack. Plus, being so isolated means if me or my puppy got bitten by something venemous we'd be far away from help.

The ticks are really what people need to worry about.

Definitely the SW desert. Black widows, rattlesnakes, scorpions. Nooo thanks.

Yellowstone and the surrounding region probably has the highest concentration of apex predators -- grizzly bears, wolves, mountain lions, black bears. Running into a grizzly bear is a real concern there. I came across more than a few on a few hikes. Never hike alone there.

I live in a densely populated area of LA County, less than 1/2 mile from two major freeways, and we've had bears, mountain lions, and coyotes in our neighborhood.

We have coyotes in our neighborhood. People have seen them walking down the middle of the street at night. They eat cats, little fluffy lap dogs and rabbits.

If you see one near your home, you’re supposed to make loud obnoxious noises so they’ll think you’re scary. Honk your horn, bang pots and pans. Use your voice so they know humans are the cause of the noise. Don’t have a peaceful interaction with them because it teaches them it’s fine to get really close to houses and snatch pets.

Walk in remote areas with a air horn, that will scare damn near anything and they’ll be happy to get away from it.

Yet you don't say what you did. Saying what you did to save your life could save a gay life.

Bitches, please. I live in southwest Broward County. Within the past 2-3 years, we've had the following within a mile of my house:

* 3 gators

* 2 pythons

* Asian water monitor

* countless water moccasins & rattlesnakes. A few months ago, one of my literal neighbors had one on his front porch.

And this isn't out in the country... my area is at least as urban as Staten Island. The nearest virgin vacant lot that's never been touched by a bulldozer is at LEAST a mile away... probably 2 or 3.

I had to google "water moccasins".

And...OMG!

I seriously hope to Jeohvah, Xenu, and the Flying Spaghetti Monster that this post about a guy releasing king cobras into the Everglades is a joke. If it's a not, this guy seriously needs to be thrown into a pit full of them as punishment, because those fuckers will breed like crazy if a pair of them ever get released into the Everglades.

R10 What’s an Asian water monitor? Is it some Chinese dude staring at a lake and holding a clipboard?

The ferocious cougars of West LA.

Are you kidding? Did you not read my post about the raccoon in my back yard?

by Anonymousreply 1506/30/2020

R12 There are already cobras in Florida. A couple of years ago, someone was going door-to-door letting neighbors know his had disappeared. A few years before that, a large (I forget how many feet) snake skin that had been shed by a King Cobra was found in the front yard of an apartment building.

Sharks ... the answer is always sharks.

Feral chickens, those fuckers peck really hard.

Giant snakeS sound absolutely terrifying!

If I lived in Florida, I'd be more concerned about other Floridians than I would about any animals.
