They say that sometimes the over-breeding of an animal can cause this because there wiring inside there brain isn't right. Sometimes they attack instinctively, someone is mistreating them or a lot of the times they are pestered by a child for a long period of time and just have enough. Some people think when a animal is breed to be mean then the litters there after will have that in them too. Don't forget nature creates all living things but nature is not perfect. You take two sets of genes, in what ever animal you want to pick and put them together and inherently they can have abnormalities. I had a dog for almost 10 years that we found in a mall parking lot. We treated that dog better than most people live. We never abused him and his was like our baby. Then one night after my husband took him for a walk and was petting him good night he lunged out and bit my husband in the face that required 184 stitches on his right cheek, 1/2 in 1/2 out. We still to this day cannot explain why, Sampson, did it. So I know first hand that it just could be something inside the dog. We didn't know anything about his background because we found him but he never showed aggressive tendencies before this. Sad but true we put him to sleep after we quarantined him, our state law, to see if he had rabies. We were hoping he did so we could figure out why the dog we loved like a child turned. He didn't have rabies but we didn't want this to happen again, and god forbid to a child, there would have been nothing left of a child's face with this bite. We just have to respect the animal world and be cautious. Don't ever let a child put their face in a dogs face, don't ever let a child be left alone with an animal, and by all means never mistreat a animal. To this day we miss our dog but know that we did the right thing. I say Prevention is the best preventative.AnswerIt's seldom a dog will attack their owner (but may attack others if they feel their owner or the owner's family is in harms way.) The above poster is correct that some dogs are over-bred and can have many maladies such as humans. We had a neighbour that got a Golden Retriever pup and I gave that pup it's first toy and would often play with the dog. As he grew he began to snarl at anyone (including myself) that didn't belong to the family. I refused to go over to visit as this dog weighed in at over 80 lbs., and meant business. The owners kept saying he wouldn't bite! I know when a dog means business and I wasn't taking any chances. He did end up biting the mailman and also would attack other dogs (big or small.) They finally had to keep the dog indoors. I'm shocked the dog didn't attack the very family he lived with because when he died the vet did an autopsy and found the dog had a brain tumor and blamed over-breeding.
Some people also don't take the time to have their dog trained. Each dog my husband and I get we go to training with the dog. Our dogs are well behaved and they listen well to commands. Even though they love people and other dogs I make them lay down in a corner of the front room while we visit. Since we don't have children the dogs are a little nervous around young children and although I doubt they would hurt a child or nip, there is always that percentage they will and it's our responsibility to see that it doesn't happen. Personally, if I had a dog that was untrainable I wouldn't have it in my home.
Well my father was in Vegas on a buissiness trip. So it was my responsilbilty to take the dog out and make sure she was fed. So me and my mom got home she was in the car talkin to my dad and i walked in there and was about to put the leesh type thing on her and she attcked me. Got a very very very deep gash on my right arm a cut on my left hand and many scratches on my left hand right arm and left thigh. If she would have bit any deeper in my right arm her teeth would have torn my tendon and I would had ave to have surgery. So we put the dog to sleep and to this day i HATE that dog. And i will never buy another pet again
In animals they might attack because they think all people are destructive
Wolves don't likely attack people but they might attack people. They mostly attack domestic pets.
A normal healthy raccoon will avoid a confrontation with humans and not attack. Only a diseased animal, such as with rabies, might attack unprovoked.
If you hold a chip a seagull might attack you just for the chip
Well people are killing more then 73 million sharks each year for their fins so it makes sense they want to attack us. Also they might mistake you for a animal if you lay down on a surfboard and swim while on it
Any animal that feels threatened might attack in defense. Ask someone with a pet snake to touch it.
yes because the animals could attack them and some people might want to hurt the refuge office and take the animal in for research
it might get mental or emotional issues. It also might be emotionally stressed and run away or attack you.
the animal will be scared and frightened. consider your safety first. the animal might try to bite or attack its rescuer even though you are trying to help.
Well, it is an instinct. They are born knowing how to do it. So even if the animal has known you since it was a baby, it might still attack you.
Crocodiles WILL CERTAINLY eat you if you disturb them and/or their habitat , get close to them, disturb their little ones, and/or provoke them. But alligators are different. They seem to have a timid temper and will often swim away or run away from people getting close to them. Alligators rarely attack people, but if they have little ones to look after, they will not run away and might attack you. If you provoke alligators they might attack you. Also if you disturb their habitat they might attack you too.
I would have to say that i think it would be the attack in the movie "Soul Surfer".... People might disagree but I think that it is that attack but say what you want i guess......
Cheetah's are wild carnivores and are extremely dangerous. Usually they might not attack humans but when threatened they might attack and sometimes attacks from adult cheetah's can be fatal too.
Some people are afraid of cats and not all of these people understand why

Rabbits generally do not attack humans. They are far more likely to run away than to attack you. Of course, ANY animal will attack if you have it cornered and it cannot run away. The only other time when a rabbit might attack a human is if the rabbit has rabies or some other disease that affects the animal's mind.
No. Whilst "Greg Possum" might be the name of a person, it is not another species of possum. Possums do not, as a rule, attack people.
Dogs bit many different types of people. They might bite someone who is threatening their owners if they are protective. They might also bite someone new who walked into "their" yard.
"what might animal friendships teach humans about themselves?" My main guess would be that people project too much human emotion onto animals.
The haggis is extremely fast.....Some people might believe your answer!
because japanese people might want to play it
It depends on what animal it is. Most don't because firstly, they aren't tamed and secondly, they might run away or attack who gets near it. But some might if they can handle it, and if they are able to tame it somehow.
The animal might not know what to do, and it might commit animal suicide.
Night owls are people. There's no specific kind of owl named "night owl".Owls in general do not attack people, but a particular frightened or startled owl might do so in an attempt to defend itself.
Yes cuz people have dreams and funny things might happen in those dreams their for you start laughing.
