2. Dogs

It's hard for most people to think of cute, cuddly dogs as a danger, but man's best friend is responsible for about 25,000 people each year. However, this isn't because packs of aggressive dogs are mauling people left and right. Most are due to rabies, which stray dogs often carry in India, Thailand, Cambodia, and other countries. Many of these bites are fairly minor. Deaths due to injuries sustained in a dog attack are much rarer.
