Sample text

Understanding need not come only from experience. A wider appreciation for the role played by the natural forces of evolution in the ancestry of domesticated animals may help to add much-needed depth to the often one-dimensional discussions that carry the day. If, rather than just another instance of man's arrogant exploitation of nature, domestication is instead a product of nature, then we will have to think more carefully about the interconnections between all species, and be less quick to apply the glib slogans of human politics, the language of "rights" and "exploitation" and "oppression," to relationships crafted by forces in many ways beyond our control.

The environmental movement's view of nature has become the predominant one in America todaynature as a pristine world, spoiled only by modern man, the klutz in heavy boots trampling the flowers. To find any reality in the vision of a nature separate from man, though, we would have to turn back the clock at least ten thousand years, back before the Paleo-Indians of North America began Page 5 running herds of mammoths off cliffs to their extinction, before the first slashing and burning agriculturists leveled the forests of Europe and Asia, and before the evolutionary imperative of domestication spread dogs and cows and sheep, and man, across the face of the earth.

Careful ecological studies in the eastern United States, for example, have shown that in areas where deer populations have exploded following restrictions on hunting (and the abandonment of agriculture and the concomitant increase in secondary forest), the populations of rare songbirds have declined dramatically. Forest regeneration comes to a complete halt as deer browse saplings to the ground. The deer themselves suffer, too, in ways they never would as the targets of hunters. Starvation and disease are not pleasant ways to die.
