Foes to Friends
The human relationship with animals has been one of radical change. What started as a predator-prey relationship (with the humans often as prey) has dynamically evolved as now animals are studied by humans, even thought of as material comforts in some case. Obviously humans have gotten smarter over the decades but, over time, what do you believe the evolutionary complications of such a quick radical shift in the power dynamic? Also do you think that there will be further change in these relationships such as Mr. Erdmann suggested (with the use of natural selection to cause peaceful coexsistance of bacteria and humans)?
