Threatened Animals



Do you remember when you were young? ... the "naughty animal" poem your parents taught you?


Those signs are an accurate indication that an animal feels threatened.

Ears back,

Teeth bared,

Eyes wide,

Nostrils flared!

 

In addition to those four signs, animals that feel threatened may snort, growl, hiss, or make other noises. 
Animals with hooves also tend to paw the ground. You should always respond immediately to any animal exhibiting these signs.
