Our relationship with animals is complicated: we love and fear them; hunt, consume and protect them. In this hour, TED speakers explore what happens when humans and animals interact. Guests include writer Jon Mooallem, animal trainer Ian Dunbar, poet Billy Collins, science historian Laurel Braitman, and biologist Frans de Waal. (Original Broadcast Date: September 5, 2014.)
