God gave man authority over animals

As David ponders God’s majestic creation, he is also awestruck by the fact that God gave man dominion over all the other creatures of the world:

Psa 8:5  Yet you made them only a little lower than God and crowned them with glory and honor.

Psa 8:6  You gave them charge of everything you made, putting all things under their authority—

Psa 8:7  the flocks and the herds and all the wild animals,

Psa 8:8  the birds in the sky, the fish in the sea, and everything that swims the ocean currents.

Psa 8:9  O LORD, our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth!

Man rules over all of the animals; God gave us these different creations so that we can sustain our species by eating them to stay alive.  

This is something that we tend to take for granted because food is always available, but if God did not created cattle or chicken for us to eat, we likely would not be here today.  

God thinks of everything!   A as the Word says, His majestic name fills the earth through all of His creations from something as basic as rock…to the complexities of the human anatomy!
