Well, I suppose you could use Matt 6:26-27: "Observe intently the birds of heaven, because they do not sow seed or reap or gather into storehouses; still your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth more than they are?  Who of you by being anxious can add one cubit to his life span?"

Still, I wouldn't take this scripture to indicate that animals have not been harmed by human activity. They certainly have been. If human mismanagement of the earth has resulted in untold suffering to fellow humans, all the more so to the animals. It's yet another injustice that the Kingdom will remedy.

Here's a favorite of mine with regard to animals:

"The righteous one is caring for the soul of his domestic animal, but the mercies of the wicked ones are cruel." Prov 12:10


I agree wholeheartedly. I also mention that it is when humans get into the picture that animals suffer. It's really a sad thing, but at the very least the Earth was created robust enough to overcome human activity once said activity is managed better or removed.
