Food for thought
While human society has relied so heavily on the domestication of animals, simultaneously they have aided in the domestication of humans. Animals are utilized in many facets of human life including labour, food, and companionship. Can human civilisation maintain itself without the contribution from animals? Whether it can or not, it is evident that both humans and animals profoundly impact each other’s lives.
