The fact is if human beings didn't eat chicken or cattle those species would be extinct. They are slow and unable to escape predators. Maybe as part of their evolutionary path they developed the ability to taste good because it was crucial to their survival. To the person who suggested eating animals should be illegal is completely out of their mind. Vegetarians are often more predisposed to disease, obesity, and nutrient deficiency. I agree something needs to be done about the treatment of these animals in the giant corporate slaughterhouses, but to project your belief of all vegetarian diet is why vegetarians are not really taken seriously as a social moment.


Well, that's not really true. No, there would not be nearly as many cattle and chickens, but there are different types of these species that could (and sometimes do) survive feral. Many, many animals would die in the process simply because they could not adapt, but you would have individuals survive and breed. I believe there are feral chickens running around in Hawaii, and there are also pockets of feral cattle. A prime example of domesticated livestock going feral and surviving would be mustangs in the western US. When the first Europeans got to the Americans horses were extinct here. All of the mustangs we see today are descendants of horses brought over here that escaped or were turned loose.

Likely what happened is that early humans found that certain species could be domesticated relatively easily, and eventually began selectively breeding those captive individuals for certain characteristics, like tastiness.
