In show business, it is said, there are two rules. The first is never work with kids and the second is never work with animals. In my stage and radio experience, I would have to agree with at least one of the rules.
Once, while on stage, a child bit my ankle. I was like, 'WTH!!This kid just bit me!!!' Let's just say that I rarely worked with small children after that. My experience with animals though, has been much different.
