      Reliable, cheap food that humans themselves can't necessarily eat, so less opportunity cost. Especially important for anything big enough to ride. Though one potential advantage of predators is that they tend to be calmer, less jumpy, easier to have a reliable working relationship with.

    I don't get why we never tried to tame moose for riding and draft work myself. Surely it would have only taken a few generations to get blood lines docile enough right?

      They have lots of time in several locations, Russia tried it, Fins tried it and Canada tried it.
      Mostly moose don’t do well at high density and will die from high parasite load, also the Russian farms tried free ranging them but as soon as you kill one they all disappear.

    Why would you want to do that when there are so many other species that could be adapted for riding so much faster?

      Elephants are probably the better option due to being more social and higher intelligence but all the lineages that had at least some level of "tameness" to them are probably exstinct now. We'd have to start from scratch and also make them less skittishly violent.

          Yes, it's called musth. Only happens to males, though.

          Yes Elephant handlers will usually tie up and seperate a male that's in musth and force them into a fast. The musth ends early when they go without food. There's also the potential option of singling out the males than have shorter and less aggressive musth periods to try and breed it out of them.

        Yes they are but sadly that doesn't mean they have the same potential to be tamed, it would probably take actual thousands of years to come with a tameable lineage.

      Could probably be done much more quickly with genetic engineering. The bigger problem would be how do you keep a canine large and powerful enough to be ridden from ripping you to absolute shreds the moment you piss it off or try to make it do something it doesn't want to do?

        This. You'd also have to breed for temperament.

        No. Whipping a dire wolf riding hound or whatever you want to call it seems like a really, REALLY bad idea.

        I vaguely remember a guy in the early 2000s that had a website dedicated to this. Dog rider society or something like that. Guarantee it was some kind of sexual fetish for him with how obsessive he was over it and how many pictures he'd collected of kids riding dogs. Shit was creepy as frick.

              I'm disappointed he didn't get charged with anything. The pics he had should have counted as soft core cp because he used them for personal sexual gratification. He went out of his way to ask people in his yahoo chat for pictures of their kids riding their dogs and would try to goad them into it when they expressed discomfort. Dude was a total fricking creep and I wouldn't be surprised to find out he's doing terrible things to dogs or kids behind closed doors to this day.

                Imagine being this absolutely moronic. Nobody said you had to trust their word. Nobody said you wouldn't find anything. You were told exactly where the material is hosted. VK and Telegram are both hosted in Russia, therefore the data is beyond the reach of American authorities without expending significant effort to earn those users trust. Even then, there's no way to confirm their identity unless they explicitly hand it over. That's how they cover their tracks. No law enforcement agency is going to give enough of a shit to pursue this when they have more important shit to expend their limited resources on like human trafficking. Also nobody said they were child rapists you fricking moron, you should really work on not having the reading comprehension skills of a fricking goldfish. The fact that they're images with children in them that exist for the purpose of sexual gratification is enough to label them degenerate perverts. Also ANY depictions of dogs being ridden are animal abuse period because you CANNOT ride a dog without harming it. They also share videos from an old Yahoo group called "Napoleon riding cult" with full grown adult women riding dogs. This is literally fetish material that exists for no other reason than people getting their rocks off.

                This is part of a wider "hard riding" fetishist group on those platforms. It's mostly horses and donkeys but they also have a lot of material of animals way too small for riding like dogs, goats, and sheep. The fetish is focused on the act of riding and sadism that goes along with it (extreme whipping and spurring of the animals, riding animals too small to be ridden without hurting them, etc). A large volume of the material comes from countries like China and South American countries that have little to no animal protection laws. This is by no means a "personal army" request, but this is absolutely a thing that exists and is quite prolific.

                Man, I'm willing to believe that there's people with really odd fetishes on the internet, we've all seen our fair share of those.
                What I'm not willing to believe is your story: we've only heard your side of it, and even that one didn't make you look good or sane.
                Hell, you even accused one random anon of being this "Tim" you're obsessed with, that's textbook schizo shit.
                And it doesn't matter how much you tell people to do their research, when this whole conversation started with you dismissing the police's research because it didn't confirm your beliefs.

      >how do you keep a canine large and powerful enough to be ridden from ripping you to absolute shreds
      Dog treats, belly rubs, telling doggo on how doggo is such a good doggo and let it bark at homos, trannies, and unwanted minorities.
      Basically the same way you raise any good doggo.
