I don't think many.They are fairly gentle creatures.In the wild,giraffes are hunted by many other animals.

Actually, my great uncle Bert got killed by a giraffe. He was standing under one while teaching his toy poodle to sit. Unfortunately, the giraffe had already been to obedience school.
Probably only slightly more than those killed by butterflies
One nearly killed me, I went into the giraffe house, as I walked through the door its head was two inches from mine - and that bloody tongue!
A giraffe killed my father, and his father before him, and his father before him, and his father before him..


very violent creatures, giraffes..
A giraffe once got pissy with me, he spat at me and tried to knock me with his head. I don't know what I did wrong to upset him?
I could guess, but I'd only be sticking my neck out!

Actually you could try ringing/mailing the Natural History Museum, London Zoo, someone like that.
