Bishop of Antioch (A.D. 150)

"When man diverted from the path [of goodness] the animals followed him...If man now would rise to his original nature and would not do evil any longer, then the animals too would return to their original gentle nature."
~God's Covenant with Animals, Lantern Books, 2000
