AbstractAnimals appear in scenarios of conflict and aggression in many guises. They can be used by humans to demonstrate aggression and power in times of conflict. On the other hand, humans continually aggress on animals in hunting or even their slaughter for meat. Animal on animal aggression and conflict was also treated metaphorically or adapted for human use as in falconry. Finally, some came into conflict with people and showed them aggression in their own right.
