No matter how unbelievable it may seem on first sight, after a sufficiently deep research the conclusion is unavoidable, that in purely natural terms humans can obtain as good as none of the animal foodstuff a large number of them nowadays use to consume daily, whereas the few kinds they naturally can obtain, reasonably are not edible in the natural raw way.
Animal milk for instance
Naturally cows are part of a herd, living in free nature whereas apart from these female animals an equal number of bulls is also part of that herd.
Particularly these bulls would certainly make clear in their specific way that they don’t agree, when a human being would intrude in their herd and then push away one of the calves that just are being suckled, so that he or she can drink that creamy white liquor straight from the source.
Maybe he or she could eventually reach this purpose after first having eliminated all grown up male members of the hurt by using an armoured horse and a considerable number of banderilla’s, but that would be far from natural.
Besides it’s most unlikely that one of the (undomesticated (“wild”)) cows themselves would permit a human being to drink with her; for she maybe even more than the bulls would feel that it should be the newborn calve that is suckled and not a grown up human being.
So most likely she would use her horns to make this clear, or otherwise she would simply lift up one of her horned feet, when the human being would have managed to start drinking anyway; as a result the relevant human being in the less serious case would pay his/her adventure with a more or less heavy concussion.
Chicken eggs for instance
About the same would happen when a human being would try to take away chicken eggs in the natural situation, where apart from the female animal an equal number of cocks are present; the human being with his or her bare hands and teeth wouldn’t have the slightest chance to put through the attacks of one or even more furious examples of these bruisers.
Meat and other kinds of animal body parts
As for meat and other kinds of animal body parts there are even more natural obstacles that prevent a human being to obtain them.
For apart from the fact that in most cases other members of the group of animals would prevent him or her to harm one of them, he or she couldn’t even get one catched with bare hands and teeth, before facing the problems that he or she wouldn’t be able to subsequently kill it, undo it of its outer layer and eat it raw.
Birds simply fly away, fishes usually don’t get that near and even if they would they wouldn’t let a (hostile) human being catch them with his or her bare hands, whereas most other animals would either beat their assaillant, or simply run away that fast, that the human wouldn’t have a chance to grab one.
A tortoise would not fight, nor run away fastly, but in that case there is the problem that removing the shield and the very leathery skin would not be possible with bare human hands and or teeth.
As for other relatively small animals that cannot fight or run away fastly, (for instance slugs and mussels) there always is the problem that in uncooked form their body tastes that reasonably unsavoury that this cannot be considered as natural foodstuff for humans.
Even if humans would take the step of scavenging it would be questionable whether specialised bait-eaters would leave something of their natural food for a human being, that for an unclear reason ignores the fact that in nature there is a lot of other foodstuff available, that is much more tastfull in uncooked form.
Although the nectar that honey is made off isn’t animal but vegetable, the secondly mentioned product of the bee’s unflagging industry is regarded as food of animal origin, in so far that it is made to honey by the bees.
As this is the one and only kind of food that the relevant animals naturally dispose of for winter, taking it away for consumption by humans is concidered to be very animal unfriendly.
But apart from that there can be no doubt about the fact that naturally humans cannot take away any honey from bee’s, as these animals would certainly heavily attack the naked ape that would have the guts of trying to take their foodstuff away, which he might not survive, as naturally he is not wearing any of the unnatural protection he nowadays wears when he commits his evil deed, whereas a multiple of bee stings use to be lethal for his species.
