Animal Emotions are Real.
There has been much debate over the years about whether animals
experience emotions or not. Those who doubt the validity of animal
emotions use the argument that emotions are not clearly defined even
when considering humans. They also suggest there is a lack of scientific
evidence and that much of the supportive evidence is anecdotal. On the
other hand, those who support the notion of animal emotion have
countered that since humans share universal emotive expressions, it is
conceivable that animals do too. Furthermore, animals do not have to
have particularly advanced cognitive abilities to experience emotions.
