The common automobile (Ipsomobile sp.) has coexisted with humans for over a century, and is generally considered to be fully domesticated. However, should the opportunity arise, they have been known to exhibit wild behavior. Note that the occasional playful nip should be distinguished from an actual attack, and is not generally considered cause for concern.
It is advisable to take precautions to prevent your automobile from acquiring a taste for blood. If automobiles turn feral, they may have to be put down.
One of the more common manifestations of automobile aggression involves the automobile’s use of one of its retractable doors to maul a human finger. An example of the results of such an attack can be seen in photographs of a human finger attacked by an Ipsomobile Accura (click photos for larger view). In this case, the automobile suffered no harm, but there have been more extreme cases in which the human counterattacked.
Human young are more frequently the targets of such attacks than mature individuals, possibly because they are perceived by the automobile as being more vulnerable, and because they have not yet learned to exercise caution in their interactions with the automobile.
