I suppose the correct answer is humans, what with murder, warfare, neglect, and other causes....|
From a table entitled
Deaths by cause, sex and mortality stratum in WHO regions, estimates for 2002
1.192 million due to vehicular accidents
873,000 due to suicide
786,000 due to Cirrhosis of the liver
559,000 due to "violence"
172,000 due to war
"Elephants cause the deaths of over 600 every year"
over twice that of the next mammal -lions.
