Dr. Pol reveals the most difficult animals to work with
During his interview on the Must watch show, Jan talked about some of the most difficult animals he has had to work with over the past five decades. At the top of his list were unsocialized dogs.
These refer to dogs that hadn’t been socialized with people. Jan said that these dogs tended to be more aggressive, particularly when their owner was close by. As such, it was almost impossible to approach the animal.
Aside from unsocialized dogs, Dr. Pol also addressed his experience with wild bulls and horses. He worked with a local rodeo outfit that kept the aforementioned animals, and suffices it to say, they were not easy to handle.
Jan said that he only had to look the animals in the eyes to tell if they were about to attack or not. Consequently, he’d be forced to jump the gate to protect himself and avoid injuries.
