Actually, I raise a multitude of animal species and all of them show emotion. These emoions range from joy to sorrow, pain and pleasure.
Some of the species I raise are preditors and they definately exibit joy and pleasure in the hunt and the kill.
While death can be a "sad" affair in any circumstance it is the natural order of life. I think it is only humans who would assign a negative to what
is wholesome and natural.
Don't get me wrong, I am appreciative of the natural order of life, and indeed it is wholesome, for the lioness and her cubs would starve if she did
not kill and eat the wilderbeest/zebra etc as we all know.
No, my comment was about how when humans kill animals, enjoy it, and photo it, we are the only species to do it, as if we must prove to ourselves we
are still the top hunters despite the modern day conveniences we have around us.
Of course, we are the only species capable of doing that at the present time.
We should just not show so much pleasure in an immortal image of the death of an animal at our hands.
Humbleness would be a better emotion.
