Can You Hypnotise an Animal?
I get asked this a lot. And people have even told me in detail how one might hypnotise a chicken or a rabbit.
Perhaps it depends more on your definition of hypnosis but what people do with animals, whether charming snakes or making chickens go “passive”, it is not really hypnosis as used with humans. You cannot hypnotise animals with the same suggestibility as with humans. They do not have the language skills or unconscious rapport that makes hypnosis work for us.
