Yes, by a domestic animal who was in distress, and who was immediately embarrassed because she knew I was trying to help her. And by playing and/or otherwise happy cats who sometimes get chompy.

Always monitor your body language, especially eye contact, with animals who don't know you well.

Yes. I was a Psychology major. For one of my classes we had to train rats, and to get them to want to work to earn food, we had to keep them hungry. As I reached to grab a water bottle to fill it, my classmate's rat stuck his little face through the cage and took a huge chunk out of my finger. I don't blame her. She was hungry!

Yes. A German Shepard loose running the streets. Belonged to a neighbor.
