* In ''Literature/HarryPotter'', Hagrid believes this trope is true, though it's averted. This is PlayedForLaughs as Hagrid attempts to take care of several species of magical wild animals. He usually names them something ridiculous (like Fluffy the three-headed dog) and incurs many, many injuries for his trouble.

He usually names them something ridiculous (like Fluffy the three-headed dog) and incurs many, many injuries for his trouble. It actually makes him bad at his teaching job, since he forgets normal children can't shrug of injury like he can. In the third book Draco ignores even the precautions Hagrid tells him to take when meeting a hippogriff and gets injured for his trouble.

Added DiffLines:

* This trope is so prevalent that it's spawned a sub-trope of its own in Canadian media: the tourist, either American or Japanese, who tries to pet the bear and/or moose.

Added DiffLines:

* Most wildlife in ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'' can be captured in cages and turned into pets by dwarves with the Animal Training labor, from stuff like lions to bears to gila monsters to giant rhesus macaques. Trained animals slowly revert back to wilderness over time, and as such require constant retraining. Certain animals like dogs, leopards and elephants can be given war or hunting training, increasing their combat prowess. If a trained animals breeds and you train the offspring before it reaches adulhood, they become permanently tame (you can't domesticate wildlife in a civilization-wide manner, but future fortresses made in the same world will start with a bonus to how easily they can train animals already trained elsewhere).

* Ayla in Jean Auel's ''Literature/EarthsChildren'' saga has, as one of her [[MarySue many, many awesome abilities]], managed to tame not only a wild horse but a cave lion, a pet wolf and by the end of the series the horse's two foals.

** A RunningGag has Sakaki try to pet a feral cat and is inevitably bitten. It's actually a little surprising she's ever able to get that close in the first place, since feral cats usually run away whenever humans make any concerted movement toward them. Later in the series it's revealed that the cat Sakaki keeps trying to pet is a dominant tom over a colony of around a dozen other feral cats, and thus is not only unafraid of humans, but capable of fighting them in a surprisingly effective way[[note]]Feral cats are not actually as solitary as they appear; they are extremely territorial toward one another (and will frequently fight each other to try expand their territory, especially to steal territory from sick or injured members of a colony) but will band together to drive off larger predators if they repeatedly harass members of the colony[[/note]]. [[spoiler:This actually happens to Sakaki in a later episode, where she is cornered by the tom and his fellow cats in an alley and ends up pretty badly scratched (especially since she wouldn't fight back). Later the cats surround her again, clearly intending to attack, only to be driven off by the solitary (and at that point extremely hungry and dehydrated) Iriomote kitten she later names "Mayaa", the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Okinawan_language Okinawan]] word for "(wild?)cat".]]

* A nasty subversion occurs in ''Literature/OryxAndCrake'' with the wolvogs, which are genetically engineered guard dogs. They look like dogs and act like dogs, even wagging their tails and playing like housepets, but if you get near them, they'll rip your throat out in a heartbeat.

It's worth noting that this behavior was not just the result of [[LegoGenetics cranking up the aggression on a normal dog while leaving everything else intact]]. They were explicitly designed and trained to act cute and cuddly until they were within striking range, as a means of lulling would-be (soon-to-be-ex)trespassers into a false sense of security. The world of Oryx and Crake is not a nice one at all.

* In ''[[Literature/{{Foundation}} Foundation and Earth]]'', the main characters visit a formerly inhabited planet. When one of them encounters a dog, it takes him quite a while to understand it can be dangerous -- and then he spends half a chapter (sitting in a tree, naturally) reflecting upon how there are no dangerous fauna (or flora, it seems) after twenty thousand years of humans taking care of the Galaxy.

* Spotted hyenas are the second largest predators in Africa, and largely feared for their raids on towns, sometimes even killing small children. However in ''Harar, Ethiopia'' they are invited into the community, as many believe their laughter frightens away evil spirits, with some residents even hand-feeding the hyenas bones from the butchers'.
