ah, ok... Now they’re blaming animals bites on...climate change

(CNN)Animal-related injuries lead to health care costs of more than $1 billion a year in the United States, according to a new study -- and they're happening more often.
The rate of all animal attack injuries has increased over the past 10 years, according to Dr. Joseph Forrester, one of the authors of the study published Tuesday in the BMJ. He anticipates that it will continue to rise, partially because of climate change.
The most common cause of injury is bites from non-venomous arthropods, the group that includes spiders, mosquitoes, ticks and centipedes. As temperatures rise, the habitats of some of these creatures will get larger as they will be able to survive in more places, meaning they are able to injure more people. https://www.cnn.com/2018/12/11/health/animal-attacks-cost-study/index.html

They've been pushing the ocean life dangers.  Guess it was time to push it to land creatures.
