How many people are scared of animals?

It really all depends on experiences or phobias but there are alot more people who are scared of animals than you would think. Unfortunately this often leads to the animals deaths. An example is snakes, usually if somone sees a snake say in their yard they kill because of fear. Stereotyping of animals also plays a huge roll in it, an example of this is sharks, many people believe all sharks are out to get them, and yes attacks on people do occurr but humans are not a natural part of a sharks diet. The movie jaws didnt help sharks either it really all depends on the way a person thinks but this is what i think about it.
