Have you ever seen an animal in the wild and felt a particularly strong kinship?
Maybe it was the way they seemed to be enjoying, with such immense pleasure, the simple act of stretching out in the sun. Or perhaps you’ve had the pleasure of watching a wild horse run through an open field and felt a pang of envy.

The truth is that you’re not alone. At one point in our lives, most of us have seen an animal and strongly identified with their nature. Whether that be perception or a factual trait of the species, each of us has felt a bond to an animal—a connection that offers insight into who we are as people.
