All living things have arisen from inanimate matter by the action of natural selection. Humans exist today with domesticated species which provide us with meat and other foods, power, companionship and other products. In this long association humans and animals have co-evolved and the domesticated species have adapted to our needs. They have spread over the world becoming much more numerous than their wild relatives and quite different from them.
Humans feel a moral duty to each other and to their domesticated animals. The question is what these moral values should be and is there a need for change?
