Electronic control of animals would be an agressive and invasive form of taming but it would be further fulfillment of James 3 :7 - "For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind":
I'm also reminded that: "Whoever is righteous has regard for the life of his beast..." (Proverbs 12:10).
