Could animals be shaping us?

“If cows went extinct tomorrow millions of humans would die.”
 
A fascinating piece here in the FT looking at some new books that explore our dependency on animals and the environment, shaking our perception that this is a modern, gadget-filled world.
 
As a friend pointed out recently (while I expressed my regular concern that I'll never be a veggie because steak pie is so tasty) - cows are a roaring success story; they're everywhere! But a sustainable success? I don't think so.
