This Map Shows the ‘Riskiest’ Places in the World

Meanwhile, as the following map clearly indicates, the safest havens in the world are Denmark, Finland, Japan, Australia, Iceland, Uruguay, and Botswana:

Personally, the map doesn’t concern us one way or the other. After watching that video of a bear mauling a camera, we weren’t planning on leaving the house anyway. Ever.
