**~ BOTW 20 Sept - 26 Sept 2009 ~**

I was looking for a bird to keep me company, and when Kaji's Dad took me to look for birds for my birthday, when the clerk brought Kaji over to me, he did this little head-bob thing and climbed onto my shoulder and would not leave it. He chose me!! It has been love ever since! Kaji's Dad is long gone but he gave me the best present he could have (other than leaving!): Kaji. After 19 years, it has been a joy and an honor to have Kaji here with me.

Hi! My name is Kaji ~ Vote CHUEY #245908 BOTM in AUGUST!

I am a Meyer's Parrot from West Allis, WI.

Kaji's nicknames are Big Cutie, Turkey-Bird, Kaji the B!

24 years old   M

Meyer's Parrot

Kaji loves food, so it would be easier to say that he doesn't like bean sprouts or radishes. He eats better than most people do. He is a bread bird--he loves Sunny Millet by Natural Ovens of Manitowoc.

Mom's left shoulder, under her shirt if it is winter, his playgym, his "Love Nest" hanging toy--anyplace that he can find to snuggle or tunnel into makes Kaji a happy bird.

Kaji hates balloons of any kind, getting up early in the morning, and not being on Mom's shoulder when she is at the computer.

Mom spoils me--fresh papaya, raspberries, watermelon seeds--you name it, she will buy it for me. And the head and neck scratches are beyond compare! She even preens my headfeathers! She is the best Mom of all, takes me to the bank in the car, to the farmer's market. She even had Grandpa make this three story playgym that I love to run around on. She loves my noises--I ring the telephone, let her know I am hungry by making microwave beeps really fast. I was really lucky she came to the store that day--I have been in heaven since!

Kaji thinks he is a puppy! He will scream "Happy Puppy!" when he is particularly pleased with something. If you say the word "car", he is ready to hop in his carrier at at time of day. Loves to go places and do things with Mom..

Food? Where's the food?
and
I only look small but I am a Macaw at heart!

  Day 20-takin' a break in Doan's Crossing
Howdy Pardners; It's a fine day to be settin' back relaxin' in Doan. Now, I must be tellin' ya, that some of these cow wranglin' birdies are inside Doan's Store at the Saloon but all in all it's a mighty good day. The chuckwagon is being restocked as I enjoy restin my vent right here in front of the Doan General Store. Henceforth it's a mighty long trail to the next town along the line. I wanta take today to tell you all a bit about the duties and requirements for each position on this cattle drive.
Trail Boss--must be very experienced, a quick thinker, cool-headed, co-operative and have leadership skills. Carries full responsibility for the entire group-cowbirds, cows, horses. Locates water, grass with the help of scouts, knows how to track different animals, keeps the peace between cowbirdies, and handles all money. Wages in 1880--$90.00 month
Point Bird--High level of experienced, most honored position on the drive, determines direction of the cattle-must be reliable, work in groups, and works in twos keeping lead steer/cow going the correct direction. Wages in 1880--$30-40 month
Swing or Out riders--must have some experience, must be knowledgeable about cattle and using horses to keep them in line on the trail. Position third ways back from the head of herd Wages in 1880 $30-40 month
Flank Riders--must have some experience on trail drives, must know how to ride a horse, Cuts in cattle that stray,rides two-thirds way back from the front of the herd. Wages in 1880 $30-40 month
Drag Riders--Usually an entry-level position--willing to work hard, endure dust & dirt kicked up by the herd, rides at the back of the herd to keep older, calves and cows etc up to herd. Wages in 1880 $30-40 month
Horse Wrangler--Entry-level job, work hard and learn, drives the remuda of horses before the chuckwagon and ahead of the cattle, rounds up extra horses, herds them into a rope corral several times daily, keeps the horses together, eating grass until change over time for cowbirds, makes sure ridden horses get extra feed-corn and grass, keeps saddle horses grouped together, helps the cook gather wood, harness the chuck wagon team. Wages in 1880 $20-30 month
No matter what position a cow bird has, it entails hard work, sweat, and determination and a drive to get the job done. Tomorrow we start our crossin' of the Red River, a dangerous and difficult task for both herd and riders. I think I'll be moseyin' along to the Saloon myself to wet-my-beak.

  Hi Kaji
Did you notice that Sugar is taking over the HOF until Maxie gets back? We were worried about Maxie since we hadn't heard from her for the longest, but Sugar said she's okay, and so is her mom, but busy. Anyway, Sugar is doing an awesome job with the pics, so when you get there, you will have some neat pics to hang in your gallery.
Mom likes the parrot purse, last year she had one with dogs on it.
Hope your mom's foot feels better soon, and she's able to walk more comfortably on it.
Today is dark and gloomy, and it was pouring rain when mom walked the girls this morning. Now it seems to be rain free, but who knows how long that will last? So, it must mean it's a laundry catch up day for us here. So many things to wash, and all those trips up and down the stairs will provide good exercise for mom today. We are keeping Kiddo's mom and dad in our prayers, as well as Sweetpepper's Grandpa. We hope all goes well for each of them and they all heal successfully.
I hope you are having a good day today and getting lots of sunshine and scritchies. Hugs, Willie

Mom and dad had a great time at the fair yesterday ! Besides seeing all the crafts and animals and walking around the midway, they saw PIG RACES !! Guess who won ? Brittany Spareribs ! har har har ! And they ate enough to last the rest of the week ! I told you daddy loves his junkfood !

Now today, mom is unpacking boxes in her classroom - she got the furniture set on Monday. Then all that's left is the bulletin boards which she can work on at home - they're easy enough to hang - it's the ideas that are tough to come up with . . .

Happy humpday ! love Cookie

We had rain in the morning and then a heat wave in the afternoon ...72 degrees with a little sun!!! Not much else new ... I did have a nice shower tonight.

Oh its so good to be able to have my dad to myself for a change!My baby fister Candida thinks she has taken him over because he asks for her everytime they have dinner,well,she can't be lose on the deck table because she just might get spooked and take off never to be found so she has to deal with being with everyone from the deck cage!I had dinner with my dad again tonight!What wacky weather we are having!You are so hot and humid while we are freezing here at night,last night was so cold,down to 56 and tonight is 59 right now and cold,it almost feels like fall already here and the afternoon gets up to 73 and the warm sunshine feels so good,Mom got us all out there on the deck and we had a soaking shower and got to dry in the sunshine!
Your poor sweet Momma with those broken toes they really must hurt big time especially when she has to put shoes on and keep them on all day for work!She is so amazing to keep trekking down to the lake on her lunch hours,my Mom doesn't blame her because she did the same thing when she was working,she'd race down to the other side of the city to have lunch with her old office friends there!
Maybe I should send you some of our cold night weather to mix it with you hot humid weather there and you might be more comfortable then!We are supposed to get rain here tomorrow,lets face it it rains and storms here every Wednesday because that's when Mom has to go out on her errand runs!Oh how I hate those thunderboomers too,they sure scare me right off my perch!I sure do hope the weather holds out for your sweet Momma so she can keep going down to the lake on her lunch hour!
I would love to crawl into that purse too if I had it here!It looks really comfy to me!

We got a few storms late last night but most of them were staying north of here. I took quite the bath yesterday too sure felt refreshing.
Was looking like rain this morning but then things cleared and it ended up being a nice day a bit humid but the worse is yet to come. Have a good night.

  Hi Kaji
Dad will be out of work for at least two weeks. The doc was saying a month, but Dad is worried they will lay him off if he tells them that. Have to get Mom's health back on track before the insurance goes away.

Well, Dad is home, and I am bummed. No more parading around the house on my mom's shoulder all day long. I did get my sunbath this morning, but then I lost Mom to a long call from the hospital while they took down every bit of data on her from the day she was born! What a pain, because then she left to go get her talons, I mean nails, done. I have her back home now, but after some mommy time I lost her to my blogging. That's right, now that Dad is home I sit in my room while she talks for me. Phooey!

And tomorrow she goes in to the hospital to get her tummy fixed, and I won't see her at all till some time on Thursday. Dad being here is no comfort at all, because let's face it....he's not Mom. She is leaving me extra food and extra water, but I will have to put myself to bed tomorrow night. And no blogging for who knows how long? So I will miss you all and think of me in my solitude and loneliness. Sure Dad will stick his head in and say hello, but it's Dad!

  Hello Kaji~
I hope you are having a great day. It's very nice here. Cooled off and we still have sunshine!
I am taking over the 10K Hall of Frame page for a little while. We emailed Maxie's mom since we had not heard from them in a long time. As far as I know they are all okay but just really busy and not able to get on the BC right now. I just used Little Angel's shower page since we are done with that for now.
Not much going on today. I've been watching the people in the pool and watched them bring back the golf cart that the office people use to take people around the complex. It must have been broken because they brought it back on a tow truck.
Lots of Halloween stuff coming into mom's store. Tons and tons of candy. They say that Snickers fun size bars are the most popular kind of candy mom's store sells. Dad likes them but not mom. She likes the 3rd most popular which is Reese's peanut butter cups! In between that is the tootsie roll candies. They sure do sell a whole bunch of candy this time of the year! They put it out early so that everyone will buy some, eat it and have to come back for more!hehehehehehe
I hope the day is just perfect! Stomping out a vote and sending hugs your way!
Love ya ~ Sugar

  Day 19--The Gathering at the River
Yeehaaaaw; Chuey here with a Cattle Drive update. We've been watchin' some would be rustlers whilst the herd was running full out towards the Red River. Trustin' that my wranglers had everything under their control I sat a while and simply watch and listen. The herd slows as it nears the water, as the foamy wet horses breath deeply catchin' a breath after miles of gallopin' all out to keep up with them dawgies.
There's many a peril on the long western trails, from snakes to rustlers, but none is as deadly as the Red River Crossing. Historian Andy Adams described Doan's Crossing:
"Red River, on the northern border of Texas, was a terror to trail drivers. The majestic grandeur of the river, with its red bluff banks, the sediment of its red waters marking the timber along its course, while the driftwood, lodged in trees and high on the banks, indicated what might be expected when she became sportive or angry. The crossing had been in use only a year or two when we forded, yet five graves, one of which was less than ten days made, attested her disregard for human life. It can safely be asserted that at this and lower trail crossings on Red River, the lives of more trail men were lost by drowning than on all other rivers together. Doan was the last town before entering Indian Territory and was the last spot where US inspectors were stationed to inspect herd brands before allowing them to enter Oklahoma.
"The thundering of the herd could be herad clear to Doan and beyond, the dust cloud arriving before the thristin' herd. I figured I'd better get moseyin' along, and keep check on the rustlers later, as the wranglers might be needing me, and the birds to get them back from the water before they drank themselves to death. We creep out real quiet-like and urged our mounts into a gallop and caught up just shy of Doan.
" Boss, what's up with the rustlers?" Sky asked riding fast to catch up
"They ain't movin no where fast, so we left'em settin' and joined back up to bring these dust-bags under control again." Chuey wiped sweat from her forehead with her bandanna.
" Pookie and Snowy have rode up front to cut them back before they hit the water full-out" Cookie yells as he races past on Thunderbolt. " Spot and Chipper are guarding the remuda, to try to keep the horses in check."
The sign for Doan's store whipped pasta s the herd started to pull to a stop atthe river edge, heads down, gulpin' water up like a sponge. " Sugar, Sweetie! Cut them two cows back before they drop dead from over drinkin"" Panther yelled trying to get a red checked bull back into the herd without much success. As the dust began to settle, we could see that the herd had spread out over a mile of river bank in both directions. It would take a lot of skill, energy, and work to gather them back into a herd. Quick horse changing, with Peppino and BonBon saddling and ropin our mounts expertly to keep us movin them Long horned devils back in place.

  Hi Kaji
I hope mom's foot feels better, wonder what she did to it? Mom's bag that she's carrying this summer was made for the parrot lover's cruise last year, and she bought it from the auction onboard ship. It's pretty sturdy, though. I hope you don't get as much rain as they say, your mom needs to be dry at work!
Not much going on here, Mom saw a movie last night called the 100 Foot Journey, starring Helen Mirren. It was a really good movie, but she and Gin saw it at 6:30, before dinner, and it made them both really hungry. It was all about 2 restaurants across the street from each other! Anyway, after the movie, they went to the Thai restaurant to eat dinner, which was delightful. That was Ginny's birthday gift--mom was teasing her because her birthday was at the beginning of June, so mom said she could finally end the celebration! Today looks like a pool day, so we won't have mom this afternoon, but once she gets home, she's ours and we might even get outside for awhile. I hope you are having a good day with lots of cuddles and good weather. Hugs, Willie

Today mom is NOT going to her classroom to work . . . she and daddy are going to the Dutchess County Fair :) Mom loves to see the animals and the crafts - she especially loves the horticulture building where there are different gardens set up and the public gets to cast a vote for their favorite - much better than judges, don't you think ? Daddy likes the woodcarving exhibits and the FOOD ! Today is supposed to be a really nice day - high 70's and sunshine so they figured they'd take advantage of it !

Tomorrow she'll go back to school to unpack boxes - yesterday she moved all the furniture to her liking . . . Have a terrific Tuesday ! love Cookie

while Cori was getting her bath today i was sitting in my cage minding my own business when a bluejay flys to a nearby tree and starts talking to me. mom quickly came back to the porch so the bluejay wouldn't land on my cage. the bluejay thought better of coming near me once it saw my mom who was covered in bugs and Cori who was soaking wet and busily chasing all the bugs off mom.

AW THANK YOU KAJI AND AUNTIE DJ FOR THE GOOD THINGS YOU SAY. IT MAKES MOM SMILE KNOWING THERE ARE FRIENDS WHO DO CARE. MOM IS NOT GOING TO THINK ABOUT IT ANYMORE. ITS NOT WORTH THE ENERGY. ONLY THING WILL BE NOTHING FOR B-DAYS OR X-MAS FROM MOM. THEY DON'T APPRECIATE IT.

NOW AS TO THE WEATHER, NOT TOO BAD, BUT HUMID HERE BUT THE BREEZE HELPED. MOM WENT TO THE DENTIST TO GET HER TEETH CLEANED. SHE ALSO LEARNED THAT THE ROOT CANAL IS A THREE STEP PROCESS. MOM GETS STEP TWO DONE ON THE 25TH AND THEN THE ENDODONTIST WILL LET THE DENTIST KNOW WHEN TO PUT IN THE PERMANENT FILLING. IT COULD BE ANYWHERE FROM 2 MOS TO 6 MOS. THE HYGENIST THERE REALLY DOES A THOUROUGH CLEANING. MOM'S OLD DENTIST NEVER DID. ONLY TOOK THEM 15 MINS AND MOM STILL WOULD HAVE THE BROWN STAINS ON THE LOWER PARTS OF HER TEETH. WITH THE NEW DENTIST, HER TEETH ARE WHITE.

WE HAD LEFTOVER CHICKEN-RICE-BROCCOLI FOR DINNER TONIGHT. IT WAS YUMMY. TOMORROW MOM IS GOING TO MAKE SCALLOPED POTATOES WITH THE CHICKEN.

We woke up to sunny skies with clouds here and there a bit cool in the morning but the afternoon was pleasant!Mom waited all day for the Verizon man to come and fix our phone lines,he was supposed to be here between 8-9am but never showed so my daddy called and then the robot told him between noon and 1pm,that never happened and then he called again,all the while IMing Mom to see if he came yet.Finally around 2:30pm he showed up and Mom is so relieved as she can now check on Nana.
I had another bad fall last night and Mom had to work hard this time to get my legs from being stuck on the top of my head again,she ran my feet and legs under the hottest water I could stand and massaged my legs and toes,I cried the whole time because it hurt to be touched!Then she slept with me to keep the pressure off my feet and also to make sure I would be able to perch and when I was finally able to perch again she put me to bed in my cage around 3am.Now she's got to get my daddy off to work tonight,he worked his regular hours and now he's going back to work all night as they are continuing long line painting(the white lines)this time!It will be just Mom and us tonight!
At least I got to share my daddy's dinner tonight with him and not my baby fister who always hogs him!Since I can't fly I got to be on the deck and daddy kept sharing me with his corn and then his orange cake that Mom made yesterday and was that ever soooo good!Candida was screaming and crying the whole time,but Mom won't allow her out without her harness and leash which she hates!
Your poor sweet Mom whatever happened to her foot?That must be so painful to be swollen like that right under the toes on the top of her foot like that?Are you sure it wasn't her shoes that were digging into her?My Mom 's had that happen to her from shoes but I don't think it was that bad as what your poor Mom is having to deal with!My Mom right after she got my dad off to work tonight smacked her toes right into the deacon bench as she came from the bathroom tonight and now she's got pain going up her leg and her toes ache!Mom and I sure do hope that it won't rain so your awesome Momma won't get soaked going to work,that's so uncomfortable to be in wet clothes and have wet feet all day trying to concentrate on your work!
Oh what better than to have a shower,and have a full crop and snuggle on Mom's shoulder,preening til your feathers glow!Now that is a greyt day for sure!I will get to sleep with Mom tonight as dad will be gone all night,now that's what I call a perfect night,snuggling down with Mom!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you and your wonderful Mom all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses!We just couldn't live without getting yours everyday,they make our world bright and warm us with love!Loving you always and forever,my awesome buddy,and I'm sending you vote#9311 heading your way!Loving you always and forver my awesome friend,Love your buddy,Dixie

  Hello Kaji
I bet you spotted that life saver right and just had to have it better luck next time buddy.
Those afternoon naps are the best they can be very refreshing.
Sure was really humid here today those weather guessers said it wouldn't be humid until later in the week . Looks like a pretty stormy week too just in time for my mom's vacation. Oh well if the weather is crumby at least it will keep her closer to home.
Happy Monday I hope your week is off to a good start.

Come visit me, Hulk Vote Chuey (245908) BOTM.

  Hi Kaji
9309

Got the pie choices, and I will leave it up to Taz's mom as to which works best in a pic.

I am not blogging today as I noted on the Calendar Page, but I knew your mom would be interested in hearing that Dad's creatinine dropped to 4.3 today which is why they let him come home. Mom is really happy to have him home, and now he can probably handle taking her to the hospital on Wednesday and picking her up the next day.

  Hi Kaji
It looks like flowers on your mom's purse. My mom has one with parrots on it this summer, and she loves it!
This is the last week for the pool to be open its regular hours. Next week all the guards have to go back to school, so the pool won't open until 3:30.
Today when mom went to the center, she had to work the reception desk because of the surgery. She prefers not to get anything near her eyes yet, until at least the second follow up visit to the eye doc this coming Friday. She also folded lots of towels and blankets, and did some of the dishes until her shift was up. It's more fun working with the animals, but every little bit helps up there.
Tonight mom is going to see a movie (100 step journey, maybe?) and have dinner with Aunt Ginny. This is a very late birthday gift for Gin, her birthday is in June. She just couldn't pick a movie til now. Anyway that's mom's plan for the evening, but we'll be in lockdown. I hope you are having a good day today, seeing some beautiful summer weather where you are, and getting scritches and cuddles. Hugs, Willie

  Day 18--Red River's calling
Phew what a long night. Keepin' watch on them Rustlers,and holdin' the herd close is a job, especially when they smell water. These Long-horned varmints can smell water for miles and when they do, it's a job to keep them from stampeding. With the comin' of mornin' we are still hankered down watching them, keepin' the rustlers under close eye.
Leaving the herd under the care of my trusty cow-hands, they're up and movin by first light. We're headin' to Doan today,at the Texas-Oklahoma line and our first difficult river crossing. Corwin Doan settled at the crossing back in 1878 and built his homestead there in 1881. Doan had a large stock of goos to supply the cowboys who annually drove cattle along the Western Trail. The village of "Doan't Crossing" had 14 or more buildings. Doan, his wife Liddie (1850-1905), and their 3 children entertained people from all walks of life - English lords to Indians - in theirs adobe house. In fact it is estimated more then seven million head of cattle and horses made this difficult crossing between 1876 and 1893.
"You all better head back to the herd," Chuey instructed, " Kiddo, Jenny-Lynn, TiPaul and Cori, you stay hankered down here and keep watch."
"Ok Boss" Boo Boo exclaimed sneakin' back all quiet like to where our horses have been ground hitched.( reins left hanging from the bit, used when horses might be needed to make a quick escape). The others rode back to the south of where the rustlers where hidden out to pervent their horses getting wind of them and tippin' them off.
"I'm goin' sneak up closer to get a better look, see if I ain't able to hear what they have up their sleeve." Chuey crouched down low and worked her way silently towards boulders not more then 50 yards from where the rustlers sat drinkin; their coffee and eattin' grub.
Sugar, Polly, Zippy, Moggie and Susan where riding point today, but the herd was itchin to run from the get-go. They kept turnin' the anxious cows back into the herd. The whole mass of cattle began to trot as they caught wind of the river ahead. Cinn-A-Bun, and Chyna rode from the drag to talk to the Point riders.
"We might as well give'em head and let'em run, we are can't keep them in and the out-riders are spending their time cutting strays back in. If we don't they're goin' a break anyways and we'll be chasing them to the Red anyways."
"You're right, tell the others to pull out a ways and give them their head." Sugar told them
Cinn-A-Bun went to the south side and Chyna took up the north and rode by to tell the others to pull a ways off and let'em run. The herd picked up it's pace as the smell of water grew stronger in their nostrils. Suddenly the lead cow took off on the run, with the others moving like a massive dusty wave over the ground. The sound of pounding hooves would be heard clear to Doan and beyond.
We're in for a fix of troubles now I'd say, sures hope they can get the herd back from the water in time.

  Hi Kaji
Thank you so much.

It was terrible, Mom had to go out and buy a new keyboard for the computer. She has a laptop, but finds that keyboard somewhat difficult to use. The one she got is lighted, and very nice. Now she can attend to my business.

Come visit me, Cinn-A-Bun.

  Hi Kaje bird buddy from Jenny
...I read your note on SP's page, and we agree with you, that kid is the type that would murder Ozzi, that's not funny!! For us it is busy Monday, which means not a lot of time for BC and FB notes! There's a slight chance of rain, and it will warm up to the mid-eighties! Dad has to ship some more toy boxes to some of our friends, and pickup more birdie fruits and veggies (they must be fresh)! Have a great Monday, and give my love to all in your home, see ya tomorrow...

  Monday, Monday !
and another week begins ! Mom is hoping to get into her classroom today and start pushing a few desks and bookcases about. She'd really like to get things finished in there this week so that she has next week to play ! It's only a couple weeks till she goes back - day after Labor Day and then the kids come in on that Wednesday.

G'pa picks up his new car day after tomorrow, so mom and dad will get to see it on Saturday. Mom drives a Ford and has been very happy with it so far - of course she has only 50,000 miles on hers. But MY Laura has a Focus and she's got near 200,000 ! ! ! Of course it helps that her dad is a mechanic !

Have a happy Monday ! love Cookie

#9300 .... a cool number :)
Oh yes, I love the purse pics. So, did you get that lifesaver? You should at least get a lick!
Maybe I should wear a bikini to the vet next time?
It was a dark and dreary day in the low 60's. The only good part was when I got a corn on the cob to destroy ... it was yummy!

  Hi Kaji and Lizzie
11 Animals More Likely To Kill You Than Sharks . Sharks are kinda scary. In the water they’re faster than us, can appear from what seems like out of nowhere in an instant, and pack a pretty solid bite. It’s easy to get nervous when you’re in the dark ocean and unsure of who is swimming by with a toothy grin. But sharks aren’t the animals you should be most afraid of. Here are some that are much more likely to cause your demise.if you’re swimming with bull sharks, you’re more likely to die by shark attack at that moment than a cow. But most of us aren’t in the water with sharks as often as we find ourselves next to a cow on a visit to a farm, or at a petting zoo. And we certainly are around bees and ants a whole lot more often than sharks. But if you find yourself swimming in the ocean — or even some rivers — you’re probably nearer to sharks than you realize.f
Mosquitoes:655,000 people killed each year, primarily in Africa, through the little buggers spreading malaria left and right.
Hippos:2,900 people are killed by these mammals annually in Africa. That roly-poly exterior is just to lure you in.
Deer:130 people killed across the US by deer, almost exclusively because they hit them with their cars. That saying “a deer in the headlights” came about for a reason.
Bees:53 people die each year in the US because of an allergic reaction from being stung.
Dogs:30-35 people are killed each year in the US. Fido isn’t always your best friend.
Ants:20-50 people are killed each year in Africa from ants. They may be small but dozens, hundreds, or even thousands stinging you really adds up.
Jellyfish:20-40 people per year die in the Philippines alone, from the anaphylaxis caused by the stings.
Cows:22 people are killed in the US every year from these seemingly docile creatures. They’re fun to pet, but getting kicked in the head… not as fun.
Horses:20 people die each year thanks to our equine friends.
Spiders:6.5 people die in the US every year from spider bites.
Rattlesnakes:5.5 people die from rattlesnake bites each year in the US, which isn’t a whole lot considering how common they are in popular hiking and camping areas.
Sharks:1 person is killed each year in the US and fewer than 6 worldwide are killed by sharks. From 2006 to 2010, there were just three fatalities from shark attacks in the US.
