Number 10: Pit Bull Dog
In August 2016, a 60 year old woman by the name of Susan Shawl was viciously mauled by her two pit bulls at her home in Conifer, Colorado. Her adult son Richard who tried stepping in also got injured, and had to call 911 for help. When rescuers arrived, the dogs were no longer aggressive, but the elderly woman was already drawing her final breaths.
Number 9: Black Widow Spider
In 2004, local police in Dortmund, Germany had to respond to complaints of a horrendous smell coming from an apartment. When they entered the place, they found the corpse of Mark Voegel, the home owner, covered in cob webs, with hundreds of spiders crawling all over his body and in and out of his mouth, ears, and nose.
Number 8: Red Deer
Gerald Rushton had been raising a European red stag since it was a faun, along with other exotic animals in his property in Harrison County, Texas. He had been ignoring the advice of wildlife officials to get rid of the stag as it was an exotic animal unsuitable for domestication. In November 2010, as Gerald entered the stag's pen to feed it, the 550 pound animal suddenly became aggressive, charging him, and pinning him against the fence.
Number 7: Domestic Hog
In September 2012, Terry Vance Garner, an elderly farmer went to feed his herd of hogs on his Oregon Ranch. The man never returned. When family members went looking for him, they were shocked to find bits and pieces of his body scattered throughout the hog enclosure.
Number 6: Hippopotamus
Years ago, a baby hippo was saved from a flood in South Africa. Marius Els, an army major, then bought the hippo at the age of five months after it grew too big for the people who first took it in. Named Humphrey, the creature would grow into a 1 ton adult hippo on Marius' 400 acre farm in Free State province.
Number 5: Black Bear
Michael Walz was a dealer of exotic pets who had been keeping wild animals in his home without a valid permit. His wide collection included a lion, jaguar, tiger, and a black bear, all looked after by Michael himself and his wife Kelly. In October 2009, Kelly Walz entered the black bear's steel cage. She distracted the 350 pound creature with some food she tossed at one end, and went to clean the other end.
Number 4: Burmese Python Snake
In 1996, two Bronx teenage brothers named Grant and Lamar Williams bought a Burmese python for 300 dollars at a local pet store, thinking to make a career in herpetology - or the study and care of reptiles. They kept it caged in their bedroom, often showing it off to friends. One day the 19 year old Grant Williams prepared to feed his 44 pound snake with live chicken he just bought. But the reptile instead quickly coiled itself around the young man's body, preferring him as food.
Number 3: Camel
This case itself is unusually disturbing for this list. Unlike the other murderous animals mentioned, this animal killed his owner by trying to have sex with her. Pam Weaver, an exotic pet lover from Australia was given a camel by her husband for her 60th birthday. The ten month old camel showed signs of erratic behavior early on, having tried to mate with other animal species in the family's sheep and cattle ranch near Brisbane.
Number 2: Siberian Tiger
As chairman of the Canadian Exotic Animal Owner's Association, Norman Buwalda was a big advocate for keeping wild animals as pets. The man had 5 wild cats he kept on his property in Ontario, including a tiger, lion, and a cougar. In June 2004, a ten year old boy came to his property to take photos of the exotic creatures on Norman's property, only to get mauled by the Siberian tiger held there. The 350 pound cat was on a leash held by Norman. However, it managed to leap forward and attack the boy, inflicting serious head and neck wounds on him.
Number 1: African lion
Al Abell and his wife Kathie had established an exotic animal exhibition farm tucked in southern Illinois. The private zoo was something the couple had dreamt of for years, and were finally able to establish in their retirement age. The couple would go on to manage the place together, but fate took a turn for the worst in February 2004 when Al was left to tidy the animal pens on his own as his wife left to run errands. The 52 year old man entered the pen of Simba, a 5 year old African Barbary lion to change its bedding.
