•You are 12 times more likely to die of a bee sting than a bear attack (120 times more likely compared to a black bear)

Well, for one thing bees serve a useful purpose in pollinating most of our crops, so we need those murderous little bitches.
Spiders kill mosquitos that carry the West Nile virus and other human-attacking ailments, so they are probably a net win for humanity.
Dogs serve various life-saving and life-enriching purposes that make up for their thirst for human blood.
We need the tornadoes to clean out the trailer parks once in a while (have friends in the parks).
Lightning, well we need lightning to keep us on our toes and remind the democrats to come in out of the rain.
Bears? Bears are good for making fertilizer and rugs. The only animal that depends on bears for food are those Kilcher people related to that singer Jewel, and they are safely tucked away up in AK.
