Even though some of the wild species of animals seem to have a mild mannered attitude, others are extremely dangerous to be around or mess with. That is the whole reason they are mostly contained with cages around them because if they did not have any of this then thousands of people would probably be dead. As stated by a management expert named Michael Conover, the animals usually only attack because humans approach their habitats and disturb the peace of the animal.

Always be careful and never just walk up on any of these species because it could turn very badly for not only yourself but others around you as well.
