Not too shocking, I get grumpy when I don't feel good or am in pain.

Why NOT an animal that cannot talk?

No, it's not surprising. What I find interesting is that it required a study to point this out and make it seem like a new discovery. It seems like undiagnosed injury would be the first thing a person would consider if a dog shows aggression, since they are so stoic and don't tell us they hurt.

This is why its always advised to put animals to sleep that are in pain. Pain can have them reacting agressively towards people. I even had Elderly Humans slap kick & bite cause of pain. Ask anyone working in a nursing home!

I think this is why my dog wasn't great in doggie daycare. They said she did well for an hour and then got snarly - I think it was her (then undiagnosed) joint problems/polyarthritis.

Thanks for posting this as we see aggression sometime in our cocker that came from rescue 6 years ago..
If he gets in a situation that he doesn't like he will try to bite , but in hine sight something triggers memories
of the abuse he had before we got him..My husband and I not thought about the pain issue of long ago..99.9% of the time
is just a sweet silly little dog..
Thank you.
