Lake Erie doesn't have much in the way of big scary critters. The most harmful creature you truly might encounter? Probably disease bacteria related to improper sewage disposal. The most dangerous thing in the lake for mortality? Probably the water itself - Lake Erie deaths, when they rarely occur, are usually by drowning.
