Gotta love the comments people leave, e.g.:  "dogs are very intelligent, more intellegent (sic) than most humans."

  There are examples of animals doing what appears to be play in the wild, but I am interested in beasts ingaged in play that involves doing something that is scarey.  Behavior of domestic dogs can be unpredictable since they have a bunch of factors that mess up the behavior they would have if they were wild: they have behaviors bred in, or they do things in order to please their owners.

  This YouTube is a case where a dog is doing something that he would surely consider scarey, but with no apparent encouragement from an owner.  He appears to be doing an adrenaline kick just for fun.  Dog owners, comments welcome on this:
