Wild animal attacks on the rise worldwide

Posted on November 8th, 2012 No Comments

The rate at which wild animals attack people has been increasing drastically all over the world the past few decades.

There have been two reports of people being mauled to death by grizzly bears this year in Wyoming and Montana, the highest single-year total in 100 years. Wild cat attacks in the U.S. have been on the rise since the beginning of the millennium.

animal attack lawyerThere are numerous reasons for this frightening increase in animal attacks. Humans have been moving further and further into animal territories and disrupting ecosystems for centuries now. As animal living areas diminish, they are losing their fear of humans and replacing it with a desperation to defend their territories and breeding grounds. People who live in these areas where the borders between human and animal territories have been attacked with increasing frequency. Packs of wild dogs have been known to surround and kill people they find alone in these kinds of areas. Human noise pollution has been shown to affect animal moods, causing them undue stress that makes them lash out.

However, animal attacks are not limited to wild animals. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report that fatal dog attacks have nearly doubled from their average of 17 per year in the 1980s to 30 in 2009. Dogs have been attacking their own kind at increased rates as well.

People who own domestic animals can be held liable for the injuries caused by their pets. If you’ve been hurt by someone else’s pet, an animal attack lawyer can help you seek compensation for the injuries you’ve sustained at the hands of the animal’s negligent owner.
