Screen Door - Screen on inside or outside?

https://www.mccoys.com/shop/heavy-du...-68/p.14040080

This is now sounding like a really dumb question, but I have the door above, and I am installing it. Doesn't really have any instructions, which is fine, but the more I stare at it, the more I wonder...which way is the right way to install the screen door?

On one hand, if the screen is on the inside of the house, then animals would push against it and the door (like you would put wire on cattle fence). But on the other hand, the trim on the door covers the screen on the edges and is really pretty so it makes sense that maybe the screen goes on the outside.

My other old screen door has the screen on the OUTSIDE of the screen door.

The frame would face the exterior, so as to look good from outside.
