It Scares Animals

A seven letter word that has T as the second letter, A as the fourth letter and S as the sixth letter. Girls love it, boys use it, parents hate it and it scares animals. Hint: It’s a German word.

A persistent puzzle solver will discover that no English word satisfies the letter requirements, to say nothing of the loving, using, hating or being scared requirements. I found three German words that work:

1) strafst
2) strapse
3) strauss

1 and 3 mean punish and bouquet respectively. I couldn’t find a definition for strapse. Punish is the likely answer. Girls love to punish boys, boys use punishment as well, a good parent hates to use punishment and animals are scared of it. I don’t know of any animals that are scared of a bouquet, though a bouquet fits as something girls love and boys use.

STRAUSS Means the following: 1.BOUQUET: bunch of
Flowers that can be used as gift, so girls lover it…….2.
it means FIGHT, and we
all know that parents hates fight and even animals
. and the other answer is OTIAUSE. Otiause is an african leaf that enhances
female beauty, it’s also an aphrodisiac, so the men
like it too. But animals hate it since it attracts both
men & women to the forest, thereby causing
