These 10 Dangerous Animals Are Right Here In West Virginia

I can’t believe that these 10 dangerous animals have all roamed these West Virginia hills! And some of them still do!

Animals have always been a big part of my life, my family has a farm. Obviously we didn’t have any of these wild animals, but we probably could have quit our day jobs and opened a zoo. Our farm has: five dogs, two outdoor cats, five sugar gliders, four adult goats and five baby goats, a pony, three horses (one of which is blind), and chickens. I hope I didn’t leave anyone out!

These 10 dangerous animals will fascinate you!

Some of the more dangerous animals of West Virginia are now completely extinct, such as the¬†mammoth, giant bear, vampire bat, and Jefferson’s ground sloth. All of those animals came from the Ice Age.

The wildlife in West Virginia is absolutely fascinating! I love learning about the animals in my state, unless it is a snake! Then I really hate to even think about it!
