Why aren’t we still domesticating new animals?

There just aren’t any more that are worth our time. It’s actually pretty difficult to find species that suit domestication—although there are a few exceptions, they generally need to mature quickly relative to us, be willing to breed in captivity, be able to eat the food we can provide, have a good temperament, recognize humans as their pack leaders, and not flee when they’re scared.

So, although we probably could domesticate some seemingly good candidates, like zebras or deer, they’re better off in the wild.

Well, it is actually one of the wrappings for sausages and cold meat. So basically, unless you are a veggie, you have probably eaten loads of it already!

Why do people use animals for transportation?

It depends on the animal. Horses, for example, tend to travel faster in a shorter amount of time than a human can. They can also, if trained to pull a cart or carriage, be used to pull heavy loads that would be impossible for one or two people to transport on their own. Oxen are used for the same reason. And it could also be due to laziness, as it's often better to sit in a saddle or on a wagon than to get down and walk.
