Very provocative train of thought.....We are pretty selective about where certain animals fit in, in the hierarchy of animals.
Some animals are family. Some animals are food. some animals are workers. Some animals are pests.

This remind of one Thanksgiving dinner we had . Someone gave our dad a live turkey that was to be our dinner. We kept the turkey in our basement for a few days and played with it as it was a pet. When it came time for dad to kill our 'pet' for dinner we said we would not eat it. Dad gave the bird back to his friend and we had a store brought turkey for our Thanksgiving dinner. I guess some people would had want to know what was the difference between the two turkeys that it was OK to eat one and not the other one.
