It is also a fear of having a panic attack in a public place, of losing control in an area from which escape may prove difficult or embarrassing.

The animals respond by “fight or flight” method when threatened or frightened. During the “flight or fight” response, a complex series of chemical reactions and changes occurs in the nervous system of the body. Sometimes, the “fight or flight” response doesn’t work, and the animal becomes very irritated or …
