The matter of why is harder to discern through a post than to see it in action. If you want to know the why find a good behaviorist. Either way a good counter conditioning program will fix it.
I'm not sure if there can be protection without an element of fear to a certain extent, either they fear a threat to a resource and/or themselves.
Either way the why doesn't matter.
