More on the handling... Many monitors will take the handling incredibly negative. When that happens unknown amounts of stress can happen and cause death. Some fight to get away( Rake, bite, whip, defacate) and then some give up when that doesnt work. In this instance they have given up the will to live and accepted death as inevitable.
Some do the "close my eyes and I can't see you" but who is certain which is going to be the result.. Just best to earn there trust through food association.
