Pets that kill
Just post any accounts off pets killing either their owners or other people/animals. Injuries caused by pets are welcome to be posted here too.

Also I wanted to know what you guys think on whether some normal domestic pets can kill people. For example, could a house cat kill a baby or a toddler? I though that the answer would be yes but what do you think?

Yes, a house cat could. Not sure if they have, but they are physically capable of it. So could a small dog also if not stopped. I am not sure why that even is a question.
There are 'old wives tales' of cats smothering swaddled babies in bedding, by sleeping atop of them, (unlikely in reality).

Domestic cats rarely sustain intentionally hurtful assaults on people, but dogs are notably more prone to doing so.
Anyone remember that 911 call with the woman freaking out after her chimpanzee got out of control and started mauling her friend?
Pitbulls are among the most dangerous breeds.

Quote: Wrote:In the mid-1990s, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention conducted a broad analysis of dog breeds involved in fatal attacks in the United States between 1979 and 1996. Over that period, the Pit Bull was identified as the breed/type of dog involved in 60 incidents, ahead of the Rottweiler in 29 and the German Shepherd in 19.

These days, dog attacks still regularly make news headlines and according to more recent research conducted by a national victims' group dedicated to increasing awareness of the problem, the breeds responsible have not changed too much.'s 13-year fatality report identified breeds of dogs involved in U.S. attacks between 2005 and 2017, as well as victim age groups, the number of dogs involved and whether the incidents resulted in any criminal charges.

The following infographic shows that the Pit Bull is still responsible for the most fatal attacks in the U.S. by far, killing 284 people over that 13-year period - 66 percent of total fatalities. That's despite the breed accounting for just 6.5% of the total U.S. dog population. The Rottweiler came second with 45 fatal attacks recorded while the German Shepherd was third with 20. Even some breeds that are not associated with aggression, such as the Labrador Retriever, also make the top-10 list with 9 fatal attacks documented.

An Illinois woman and her child were hospitalized Sunday after they were attacked by a caracal, which is a large exotic cat that is often compared to a lynx, reports said.
Neither the mother or child were identified, but the attack occurred at about 11 a.m. in Bloomington, reported. The cat apparently escaped from a nearby home and was killed by police after it lunged at animal control officers, the report said.
The woman and her child were reportedly walking on the sidewalk when the animal lunged at the child. The mother intervened and both suffered scratches and puncture wounds, the report said.
The report said that caracals are often referred to as the desert lynx and were once trained in places like India and Iran to hunt and kill birds.
Just a normal guy who want to learn things !
