The results found that people were more upset about a baby, a puppy and a dog being attacked than an adult human.
Another study, published this month by researchers at Canisius College in New York, found that women who sleep with their dogs have a better sleep than those who sleep with partners. Researchers surveyed 962 women living in the U.S. It found 55 per cent slept with a dog, 31 per cent slept with a cat, and 57 per cent slept with a human. The women with dogs, according to the study, were more likely to have a restful night.
