Chapter Summary

This chapter distinguishes two types of animals namely domestic and wild. The domestic ones we can live with. The wild ones we cannot live with. As Donna Haraway explains in her The Companion Species Manifesto: "The term 'companion animal' enters US technoculture through the post- Civil War land-grant academic institutions housing the vet schools. From them we draw what has come to be known as our companion species. Jerzy Stulter's Film, The Big Animal (2000)-from a script by the late, celebrated Polish director, Krzysztof Kieslowski-tells a story of how a certain animal might live in society. Werner Herzog's documentary, Grizzly Man (2005), provides the finest visual record we have of a human being living among wild animals.

Keywords: domestic ones; human society; Jerzy Stulte; wild animals
