"SunChaser, with all due respect, I knew someone would fail to see my point. Whether it's fear or whatever that causes any mammal to exhibit aggression, we as the "superior" species (which could be questioned) should first and foremost NOT invite it by "cornering" or even trying to "tame" a wild species. If you live within a 30 minute drive of your neighbor, you don't live in the country, you are simply rural. Too many people don't recognize the signs of fear driven aggression or just plain meanness, which also exists in animals. We have run into so many folks that dump thier pets. Racoons, skunks, and possom as well as dogs and cats, and here lately with the depression of the horse market, horses of all ages and condition. They think that they will either be taken in by a friendly farmer/rancher or will go back to the wild even though they have been raised since a baby by people that wanted an exotic pet. Please, just leave them alone and take responsiblility for your actions when you own any kind of animal. You probably wouldn't believe how many horses and other "pets" we end up having to put down every year because people just don't understand how much it takes to have a pet, any pet, exotic or not. They reach sexual maturity and become agressive, they get tired of the kids pulling their tail, whatever. They get dumped and end up starving or torn up by really wild animals, stomped by a cow, etc. And they DO NOT just naturally know how to take care of themselves when you turn them out. Dogs and cats rarely make it through the first night. They are a meal for the first coyote that hears them crying. Most of the exotics fall prey to the coyotes too. I'm sorry, but most of you just don't know what it is like to truly live out so far that most people don't even know we are here."
