IMO the CZ 75 is not a super soft recoiling pistol. My 9mm 75 didn't feel any softer than a Glock or an alloy frame Sig. The high bore axis and the relatively light frame combined for a very average feeling 9mm.
For wild animals I think the .40 is a step up from the 9mm especially when comparing FMJ's. A .40 cal 180 flat point FMJ is a solid round for an auto loader, not a magnum revolver, but a step in the right direction.
The softest shooting .40 that I've tried is the Springfield XD .40. Of the steel frame pistols, the Sig P226 ST is the softest shooting .40 that I've tried.
