Thank you, Avis, for pointing this out. Isn’t it interesting that folks don’t take the animal into account, the disorientation, the terrifying physical feelings, the popping ears, the noises, the crowds of people pressing in?

How incredibly selfish that we assume that the animal is more mature than we are.

Well said.
