Is dropping an animal and picking it up again to reset the doafter exploiting?

Such as picking up a mouse, mouse tries to escape, you put it down and immediately pick it back up so it can’t escape.

Please keep in mind that player controlled animals are still players. Trapping players for significant periods of time for no reason may violate other rules, even if the player is an animal.
