Javelina is number 6.

When I come across stuff like this, it’s not fair to keep it to myself. VPI Pet Insurance released a list of most dangerous animals to pets. Javelina? What th...? (It’s a peccary, which is a medium-sized mammal of the family Tayassuidae, member of artiodactyl suborder Suina. Pay attention.) THEY’RE NOT PIGS, only piglike.

The rest of the list?

1. Snake
2. Coyote
3. Raccoon
4. Squirrel
5. Scorpion
6. Javelina
7. Porcupine
8. Ground Hog
9. Skunk
10. Rat

They're astoundingly dangerous, particularly when protecting their young. Very aggressive. Humans hiking in the wild need to look out for them too.

Avoid them if you can; if you can't, better have a pretty damn big gun because one shot from a varmint pistol will just make them angrier.
