That makes sense and excellently put.

Considering attacks of that nature are by animals living amongst humans it stands to reason that the animal attacking felt threatened. For the animal life is like being in a foreign land where you only know a few key words, if you start picking up words being spoken that makes you feel threatened you will start feeling those fight or flight emotions.

Same can be said for wild and feral animals, if interaction with humans becomes a regular occurrence it would be wise to try pick up on their lingo. We are very emotional creatures after all and it's hard enough understanding each other at times. Imagine the confusion animals could have attempting to understand us?

However, as we can observe with people to people discernment and perceptiveness . . .

and with kids having kids and pretending to be proper parents . . .

there can be very precious little understanding to go around.

It grieves me how calloused and ignorant people older than 10 can be toward children and animals . . . and then blame the child(ren) and/or the animal(s).


Most dogs and certainly most children are super eager to please their care-givers. But mixed signals and 'damned if you do and damned if you don't' contingencies are murderously horrific to try and navigate.
