I don’t think you can compare them, and I also don’t think you should.
First, every species of wild animal has a different typical life cycle. Wild cattle vs wild chickens.
Second, farm animals have extremely different lives even within species, depending on whether they are designed for milk, eggs, meat, wool, etc. and particularly, whether they are male or female. Industrial farming has greatly increased the overall ‘necessary cruelty’ of raising domestic animals for food purposes, but that doesn’t have to be the case, we just want our cheap food more than we care about animals we don’t see.
Third, these kinds of comparisons inevitably tend to sentimentality about ‘wildness’, emotionalism, anthropomorphizing, and then to extreme actions of the type associated with religious zealotry. I have many – many – stories of such actions, which cause great suffering.
I have spent my whole life with animals, mostly domestic, and with people who have to do with them. It is very hard for many humans to grasp what animals are *about. * We too are animals. We have far more in common with other animals than we recognize. But that doesn’t mean they are people. They are not. What are our responsibilities to them? There is no easy or simple answer to that question. There are no either/ors. There is no eden. We are enmeshed with other animals, irrevocably. Those are the things I know.
