When you go home from school, do you ever worry that you’ll run into the noisy, unruly dog? There are others besides you. Kids frequently become frightened of dogs they don’t know, wildly if the dog is barking loudly and its owner is not present.
To maintain composure among dogs:
Even if a strange dog approaches you and appears to be friendly, avoid petting or otherwise interacting with it.
Don’t run if a dog starts to run in your direction. Even if the dog doesn’t want to hurt you, running away may make it want to pursue you because of its natural tendencies.
Be very still if a strange dog approaches you. For a moment or two, this might be frightening, but the dog will usually get bored and leave. Allow the dog to sniff you if it tries; this is how it assesses you.
Move slowly away from a strange dog. The dog will only be excited if you move your arms about or create a lot of noise. Look straight ahead rather than at the dog.
Inform an adult as soon as possible if you are terrified of a strange dog or if the dog tries to bite or attack you. He can track down the dog’s owner.
One more thing about felines also called cats: Even though most youngsters aren’t as afraid of unknown cats as strange dogs, it’s still a good idea to avoid them. Even if a peculiar cat appears friendly, never pet or handle it.
Animal welfare and cleanliness
Proper cattle management requires good hygiene, especially in enclosed environments where infections can spread quickly. Of course, maintaining a clean, dry environment is vital, but there are other aspects that are equally critical.
Ideally, ventilation would reduce dust. There may be different molds in the feed that might lead to digestive and respiratory issues. Before feeding any meal to cattle, it should be thoroughly examined. Deal only with trustworthy feed vendors, and have any questioned feed checked.

human diseases caused by animals
All animals, whether domesticated or wild, can potentially infect humans with diseases and parasites. Zoonoses are illnesses that can spread from one animal to another or human to another.
The lethal rabies virus harms the central nervous system. It can be spread through a bite, an open wound, or a sore by saliva from an infected animal. Rural residents are more vulnerable to rabies because of their proximity to wild animals, even though widespread pet vaccination has significantly lessened the hazard. Animals acting strangely should be taken in to be examined by a veterinarian. If you believe an animal you were bitten by may have been rabid, get medical help immediately.
