You're wrong; we wouldn't have survived the middle ages without owning domesticated (non-wild) animals. Horses to plough the fields, chickens for eggs, sheep for wool. Cats to keep rodents out of the grain shed, dogs to help protect the family.

Survival comes before happiness, even for animals. Which sounds happier, the diseased hog in the snow outside that's being hunted, or the fat pig in the barn nursing her young in the warmth?

Quite a lot of dogs that mourn their owner; yet you want to imply that the feral dogs in southern Europe are happier? Flea-infested mangy dogs - in the wild there is a daily struggle for survival.

How about you? Would you prefer to live "in the wild" to be happier? Smile | :)
