They give us food, drink, and clothes (leather). Back then, cows can be used to plow the land - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

I have always wanted to have a few sheep.I think they are so sweet.And in the spring watching the lambs playing and jumping.But can anyone tell me can a sheep bloat? As a kid my parents had cows and I've seen them bloat.

Milk, meat and wool (i.e. clothes, blankets). - Metal_Treasure

9 Camel Camel A camel is an even-toed ungulate within the genus Camelus, bearing distinctive fatty deposits known as "humps" on its back.

You can't see Camel in every country. And it may not be useful in every country. But for desert areas camels are very useful. They can store fat/water in their humps. Which can provide them their water. So they can travel trough deserts for many days. People of those areas can use them for traveling through deserts, or use them for carrying things and also can eat their meat - zxm

Desert version of Horse and cow. - zxm

10 Bee Bee

Bees are useful in so many ways, like providing honey as a sweetener instead of sugar, and helping the plants to grow by pollinating them.

Providing honey - zxm

Bees are very useful and we should all help to protect them

Very important. Withiut bees, plants would die. Without plants, animals would die. Without animals, HUMANS will die. - Lunala

The Newcomers

? Dolphin Dolphin Dolphins are a widely distributed and diverse group of fully aquatic marine mammals. They are an informal grouping within the order Cetacea, excluding whales and porpoises, so to zoologists the grouping is paraphyletic.

They are very friendly.

The Contenders

11 Goat Goat The domestic goat is a subspecies of goat domesticated from the wild goat of southwest Asia and Eastern Europe.

12 Pigeon Pigeon Pigeons and doves constitute the bird family Columbidae, which includes about 310 species. Pigeons are stout-bodied birds with short necks, and short slender bills. They primarily feed on seeds, fruits, and plants.

Besides carrying messages (which saved many lives in wartime), they are meat birds. I don't eat my beloved pet pigeons, though. - Crwth

Can be used for sending messages - zxm

"Don't insult pigeons? " Is that a serious demand? Will you be writing a manifesto?

The pigeon was the only animal on this list to receive a truly derogatory comment. When you denigrate pigeons, you insult us pigeon fanciers, and we will defend our birds. - Crwth

People in Africa eat them
