large pet like a big dog.
Yes because even the most mild of pets can turn vicious in a heartbeat. It is in their nature.

I wouldn't say NEGLECT. My husband had a rottweiler when our first child was born. She was extremely big and extremely over protective of him. I never worried that she would bite him or anything but they weren't left alone together because I was worried she might step on him or do the mama bear thing and pick him up with her teeth. Maybe using common sense? Yes, I think it might be common sense to just not chance it but neglect? No, I wouldn't call it neglect.

I wouldn't do it because you never know. When my sister was an infant, my parents rented an apt. upstairs in the house of an elderly couple with a cat. My sister was asleep in her bassinet & my Mom went to make lunch and came back & the cat was curled up in a ball over my sisters face. The cat must have sneaked into the apt. The elderly couple got so upset that they gave the cat to a neighbor to keep. So even a cat can be dangerous with an infant.
