Animal disasters

Lions, and tigers, and bears ... and ants, and frogs, and bunnies: oh my what a list of animal disasters that have plagued mankind. Ever since the Hounds of the Baskervilles ('14) were let loose on the moors, just about every animal has been portrayed as a deadly killer. I've collected over 100 (and counting) movie titles where the main theme is some species going out of controll and biting the hand that feeds it. These are existing species, not alien, or manufactured, that have mutated, grown or just gotten very angry. Down spot, down!!
