That question could be answered adequately over the course of an entire book.

In short, on one hand, there is the practical appearance of animals in blood sacrifices, and on the other, the appearance of animals both as symbola in the divine seirae of deities, as well as elsewhere in popular mythology, both divine and otherwise.

A very broad and fairly vague answer, I'm afraid, but the question is awfully nonspecific from the get-go.  Wink
