I would think this would be the reason to want to have such a spell. It is supposed to be useful after all. I sure don't see it as an exploit.

I think of the movie Beastmaster as a reference.

Of course, it could be one of those scientific references. It has to be mammals, because of some magical reason. (like no iron for Wizards)

Overall, I'd allow it for the spirit of what the spell seems to be about.
