Tame Animals   By:

Book cover

Tame Animals by Anonymous explores the complex relationship between humans and the animals we call our own. This thought-provoking book delves into the way we domesticate, train, and ultimately control various species for our own benefit.

The author takes a comprehensive approach, examining a wide range of animals that have been tamed throughout history. From domesticated pets like dogs and cats to larger animals such as elephants and horses, the book showcases how humans have reshaped these creatures to suit our needs and desires.

One of the key strengths of Tame Animals is the author's ability to present a balanced perspective. While celebrating the bond between humans and their pets, the book also addresses the ethical concerns and consequences of captivity. The author raises important questions about the moral responsibilities humans have towards the animals they tame, and whether our actions are always in their best interest.

The writing style in Tame Animals is engaging and accessible, making it suitable for both casual readers and those with a deeper interest in the topic. The author employs a mix of personal anecdotes, historical references, and scientific research to offer a well-rounded exploration of our relationship with tame animals.

What sets this book apart is its emphasis on the emotional lives of the animals themselves. The author delves into the psychology of these creatures, their capacity for love, loyalty, and even sorrow. Through vivid descriptions and heartfelt stories, the reader gains a deeper understanding of the impact domestication has on an animal's well-being.

Perhaps the most captivating aspect of Tame Animals is the call to reconsider our own role as caretakers of these creatures. It forces us to reflect on the power dynamics at play and the potential consequences of our actions. This book serves as a reminder that animals are more than just commodities; they are living, feeling beings that deserve our respect and compassion.

Overall, Tame Animals is a powerful and thought-provoking exploration of the human-animal relationship. The author skillfully navigates the complexities of taming, shedding light on both the positive and negative aspects. It is a book that will challenge readers to reexamine their own views on domestication and the responsibilities that come with it.

The Hare is a very timid animal, running away on the least alarm; but, poor fellow, he is too often caught by the dogs and killed, notwithstanding his swift running. It is rather difficult to tame Hares, but there is a very amusing account of three, named Puss, Tiney, and Bess, written by the poet Cowper, who kept them for some time, and one day you shall read about them. The colour of the Hare in this country is usually brown, but white Hares are found in very cold countries. The Hare does not burrow like the rabbit, but makes a kind of nest called its form.



The Goat ranks in general usefulness next to the sheep, and as a domestic animal is very valuable. His chief pleasure seems to consist in climbing from one rock to another, for which amusement his hoofs are well adapted. The milk of the Goat is sweet and nourishing, and is made into cheese by the mountaineers, who also eat his flesh, which is rather tough. His skin is made into the materials called morocco leather, and vellum; and that of the young animals, the kids, is used to make the best kinds of gloves... Continue reading book >>
