Smokies Stats of the Day

The latest issue of Smokies Guide (the official newspaper for GSMNP) published a list of the average number of serious injuries in the park on an annual basis. I thought these were quite interesting:

Motor vehicle related: 250
Walking related: 38
Bicycle related: 16
Horse related: 7
Burns: 6
Cuts from knives, etc.: 6
Tubing related: 5
Bee sting reactions: 4
Bites from small animals: 3
Snake bites: 1
