There have been 439 fatal shark attacks worldwide since 1958. That’s just 7.5 shark-related deaths per year. More people died while trying to taking a ‘selfie’ than from shark attacks last year.

In July, a woman from Mississippi was gored to death by a bison while visiting Yellowstone National Park. She had been trying to take a selfie in close to the animals.Between people getting attacked by anti-selfie bison, the bears of Colorado and a rattlesnake, selfies with animals is just as dangerous.
A 21-year-old woman accidentally shot herself in the head while posing for a selfie with a gun in Moscow.
Three college students attempting to take a selfie in front of a passing train were killed when they were run over by the train.
