Quote:How can this be? You rarely hear about a cow killing a human, but it happens about 20 times every year.

That’s 27 times the whopping 4 people killed in shark attacks in the United States during the same time period, according to the International Shark Attack File. - See more at: http://www.physiciansweekly.com/statisti...uCOcn.dpuf
