12. The mother kept looking back and she wasn't afraid or skittish. I wonder what

 

she 'felt'.

I used the word 'felt' because someone dealt me a fit for using the word think in regard to a animal (somewhere else, not here). I was told emphatically animals do not 'think', which is something I disagree with. Now they may not be capable of drawing up the plans for a atomic weapon or figuring out how to bring down buildings with airplanes like the human animal can. Or conversely, how to cure disease or put a man on the moon. But I do believe that there is more than instinct going on between their ears.

14. I think she felt worried about her baby

So worried in fact that it overpowered her self preservation instincts that would normally warn her to stay far away from loud noises and groups of potentially dangerous beasts.

In the end I believe she felt incredibly relieved to have her baby back, and although I am likely reading this into it I believe she felt pleasantly surprised and grateful to the scary creatures for helping her baby (she did let them observe the reunion, normal deer behavior would have been to get her baby away as fast as possible and hide from potential predators)

16. What surprised me was when she stopped and let the baby nurse in full

 

view of all those people. She kept looking back at them and she was as calm as can be.

15. Of course animals think.

The idea that they do not is an old fallacious one, as is the notion that animals have no emotions. Many mammals, birds, and even octopi demonstrate high levels of intelligence, reasoning, problem solving, and sophisticated communication. Of course, acknowledging that does make it more difficult for people to justify a lot of the atrocities committed against our fellow Earthlings.

17. I don't know how to put this but what was stated was that people like me

 

who believed animals could 'think' were ignoramuses. (I hadn't heard that word in years.)

20. Having been around animals for all of my life, I know that they can and do think and reason.

Watch an animal with a problem figure out how to solve that problem. You can actually see the wheels turning.

21. You don't have to convince me. I've seen some dogs that are smarter than a lot of

 

people I know. And I've got a cat that's figured out how to open cabinets. (That's a real pain in the butt.)

job.

Thank you.

28. Here's an example from last week,

I was parked at a store and sat in the car to finish a call before getting out. i noticed a sparrow land on the hood of the car parked facing me. He looked around a bit, then hopped onto the front bumper of the car. He then started to eat all the bugs that were stuck in the grill! It was a buffett to him! It was hilarious, watching him pick which ones he liked. He took his time and filled his belly!! I'd never seen that before and wondered when he had figured it out.

30. Same hero. Anyone who believes that animals can't think has spent zero time around any animal.

Either that or they are among the few psychopaths who want to justify their cruelty to "lesser" species. Most puzzling to me are those who hate certain types of animals and love others. Most usually these people are "cat haters" (to the point of deliberately trying to run over them if they are at the side of the road) but just LOVE their own dog and best buddy.

29. Of course they think.

That higher order animals reason and solve problems is a scientific fact. Anyone claiming otherwise doesn't think clearly.

It is so good to see this posted rather than the normal posting of the conspiricy theory nuts. This is what true Democrats believe - LOVE and loving action for all God's creature including ourselves.
