Why Are There No Domestic Moose?

Domestication allowed our species to conquer the globe. This is how it works.

Explains quite well why cats are the way they are and so different from dogs.

1. Probably the same reason we didn't domesticated zebras. Jared Diamond says they're too

dangerous and don't really ever tame.

6. It's explained well in the video. Some species just will not yield to human dominion...

and many are just too dangerous or impossible to breed in captivity.

I've heard from friends in Wyoming you don't want to be around a pissed off moose. They do however pass the test with flying colors on usefulness: leather and meat.


But the best part was the explanation about cats.....

3. This whole premise ignores the fact that it's cats who actually conquered the globe.

We’re all working for them whether we realize it or not.

I have my own opinion as to why they can't be domesticated

9. It's been predicted in science Fiction (as just about anything possible has been)

Hiero's Journey

Hiero's Journey is a post-apocalyptic science fiction novel by American writer Sterling Lanier first published in 1973 by Chilton Book Co. The novel follows the adventures of a priest by the name of Per Hiero Desteen as he explores the mutant-infested wilderness of Canada and North America five millennia after an event called The Death destroyed civilization. Riding a mutant moose named Klootz, with which he is able to communicate telepathically, Hiero attempts to uncover what has become of some colonies that his abbey has attempted to establish. Hiero's eventual allies include Gorm, a telepathic black bear, and Luchare, a princess from the distant kingdom of D’alwah. On his journey he faces many dangers, including mutated humans, mutant beasts, and the evil forces of The Brotherhood of the Unclean.

I read it and might still have a copy in my science fiction collection. Unfortunately, that is packed away so I can't check. But the book is now available from Amazon in Kindle format - or should be if they can get the file replaced:
