It's been around for centuries, and for good reason:
Cet animal est très méchant,
Quand on l'attaque il se défend.
(This animal is very wicked,
When attacked, it defends itself.)
For the benefit of Ms. Sawant, I'll add that the verse is ironic.
If you don't follow Sawant closely, you may need to know that she has attacked Israel for defending itself against the Hamas terrorists.
