I'm guessing you don't see many animals, or have ever even tried to communicate. They speak in their own ways- pets regard humans as subservient, the wild regard humans as dislocated freaks. Only those halfway inbetween make any attempts at communication to humans, other than warnings or orders.
You don't understand them, and probably never will.
I've seen their conciousness. Don't tell me that they have none.
You're the delusional one. You're saying that they're non sentient, and that they're not even 'others' are they just items to you? Things to be used and abused?
Lions enjoy the kill. It's their fun- the chase, the excitement, et.c. I don't pretend to understand, but those lions in zoos really sulk.
So we are now intelligent enough to understand the suffering of others, and to lessen our impact on their pain. And I don't think lions would factory farm zebras- it would cause them to die of boredom, maybe the weak or old ones would, though... so they'd de-evolve, like us, into weak lemons, playing 'catch the zebra' computer games and painting their claws.
