I thought of this from an other post. Many animal owners are found to be respondsible if thier pet bites a child even if the child was playing with the animal wrong. Unless you have a video camera running, you don't have proof that the animal was pestered. A parent may not tell the child how to handle an animal, or how to know when it wants to be left alone. Some animals are called "viscious" because they bit a child once or twice and are forced to be put down. I thought this was unfair to the owner and was wondering about how many people thought it would help if a teacher was told to teach kids how to handle animals and how to know what they are feeling.
