Animals as Beings
I found this article from The Boston Globe and thought it was interesting. The author states that at one time animals were suspected to have thoughts and feelings, they were even committed for crimes. Since then though, times have changed and people feel like that statement has become false. Humans also stopped using words like "who" and "whom" to describe an animal, instead words like "it" are more common. Animals, I believe, are smarter than most people think. The author gives a great example with a lioness she had an experience with. I believe animals have feelings and thoughts and can control those thoughts and feelings as well.
