Animal Emotions

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.
