So pronounced can this perception of humans as predators be that even seemingly unobtrusive forms of human presence can trigger fear and associated behaviours in wild animals (Caine 1992). For this reason, even though an animal may be in the vicinity, it is still likely to be difficult to see, let alone to view with any clarity or for any length of time. What might be called restricted detectability is a characteristic of most wildlife. The evasiveness of wild animals can make them difficult, if not impossible, to observe.

Heinrich Hediger has argued that the flight response of a wild animal is the main barrier to its usefulness for Man: If we look more closely, it becomes clear that the primary reason for usefulness as domestic animals to man is not the horse’s pulling powers, nor the dog’s intelligence, nor the cow’s milk capacity, nor the hen’s egg output, but is basically a very different domestic quality, namely, the disappearance of that tendency to escape, so fundamentally important for their wild ancestors ….
