I remember seeing some Vedic verses related to this (either in Rig or Atharva Veda) and they were either talking about all animals and in that humans were too there or like that only but thinking (humans=animals).

Can someone give proofs from Vedas and/or other texts like the Brahmanas, Aranyakas, Upanishads (13 major ones), Manusmriti etc.
