Gorillas, ala King Kong, have long been portrayed as vicious brutes when they're usually gentle animals. Though you wouldn't want to tick one off.

Oh yes I remember, giant ant-eaters. They should've had aardvarks instead!

A cat that is in a bluff or threatening mode may make noise, such as a snarling lion, but when a cat means serious business it is silent.
Add to that housecats are often portrayed as making some sort of an angry sound when they wouldn't make any sound or just a meow or a purr, unless some a-hole had done something cruel to them. That helps perpetuate a negative attitude toward cats.

The myriad of venomous snakes that are generally milk snakes, or gopher snakes. Happens over and over and over again.
