Is there any class of creature in Australia that doesn't have any members trying to kill humans?

Nope. The more benign ones get shipped across the ditch and become a feral nuisance.

My cats don't actively try to kill me.

Magpies are not discriminatory - they also swoop dogs, horses and other birds.

Cristina the most dangerous animals in Australia are also very common in your part of the world.

Okay, sure, we have the first three, but the fourth is all yours!

Though I do suspect that deer cause at least as many traffic deaths per capita in the US as kangaroos and wallabies do in Australia. Kangaroo and wallaby collisions in the US are less of a problem.

It’s hard to tell if it’s the kangaroo at fault or the wallaby...

Do deer have collisions with raccoons?

Possibly there are more deaths from deer ticks than deer?

Only if you tick them off.

I collided with a kangaroo whilst orienteering. It died. I didn't.
