7 Domestic Animals That Are Actually Very Scary

August 15, 2020

Domestic animals are animals that are adapted to live alongside humans. Unlike wild animals who live in the forest or ‘away’ from humans. But see ehn, some domestic animals should be sent away from human abode. Here’s a list of them.

1. Turkeys.

Have you been chased by a turkey? Those creatures don’t give up. I honestly refuse to believe these are the same animals that we add to soup. Because really, we’ve been eating domestic terrorists, not animals.

Another picture, so you can be reminded that these so-called domestic animals manifest terrors in multiple forms.

2. A mother hen.

Have you ever been pecked by this? I wonder how they think. I mean, I know they’re trying to protect their chicks, but did this hen really think I would wake up on a Monday morning, dress up in finery, wear perfume and decide it’s a chick I want to kidnap? Seriously?

3. Cows.

Just one question: when you see them coming towards you, do you charge into them or do you begin to mutter incantations under your breath?

4. Any dog that is not my family’s own.

Because that’s how you will be calling “Bingo, Bingo” and Bingo will decide to feast on your hand. God abeg.

5. Cats that are not my own.

Because you never really know when your village people decide to shape-shift and harvest the remainder of your destiny.

6. Owls.

See the look sef. Does it not scare you?

7. Bats.
