Every animal is just another volatile compound with an indeterminate flashpoint. At some point, any and every animal can be pushed into fight/fight response, and there is probably no way to predict which will happen. Deny it flight, though, and when the level of stress becomes too high, fight is going to be the response.

Animals aren't capable of rational thinking, they can't work out the consequences of a violent reaction. Even the brightest of human beings with all of its advanced processing isn't capable of that sort of rational behavior when the pressure reaches critical. That stupid scene in dune was pretty well explanatory.
