Some people love animals so much that they forget to use their brains, or what little there is of them. Newsflash: things with sharp teeth, stingers, etc. should not be fooled with! (will expand on description later)
- Leela from Futurama, whose love of all creatures frequently puts her crew members at risk. "Aww, it's so cuuuutee!" Famous last words.
- Hagrid from Harry Potter. The more hideous and dangerous a magical creature is, the more he loves it. He also frequently insists that such creatures aren't dangerous, just "misunderstood".
- Radical environmentalists Nick and Sarah from the second Jurassic Park film. Sarah in particular - bringing a wounded baby T-Rex into a trailer, knowing there's probably a very pissed off Mama Bear and Papa Wolf out there? What an Idiot.
