From a secular standpoint, can a humans be considered gods of the animals beneath them?

Pic unrelated.

It's easy to imagine animals viewing humans as gods in the way that peasants might view an Egyptian pharaoh or a Roman emperor declaring himself to be a living deity, especially those animals that regularly interact with humans on a daily basis.

It's more of a stretch to imagine animals viewing humans as something more abstract like Yahweh or Allah or one of those types, but not impossible if you think of an animal that receives no direct human contact but might notice their environment slowly changing around them. Your animal might get some inkling that there's a mysterious force out there beyond its control making its life needlessly aggravating, but doesn't have the frame of reference to fully appreciate what's out there working in mysterious ways.

I can't get over the picture.

No species capable of gestating both the music group Insane Clown Posse and their Juggalo fans should ever be described as gods under any circumstances.
