Raven Empathy « Life « Science Today

Raven Empathy « Life  « Science Today | animals on our planet | Scoop.it
New research shows that ravens may feel empathy.

 

Empathy, like many other traits, was long thought to be a human-specific feature. But recent research has revealed that animals from chimpanzees to dogs to rats can feel empathy.

 

Frans de Waal, PhD, one of the leading researchers in animal behavior and the author ofThe Age of Empathy: Nature's Lessons for a Kinder Society, has said, "The possibility that empathy resides in parts of the brain so ancient that we share them with rats should give pause to anyone comparing politicians with those poor, underestimated creatures."

 

Last week, two Austrian researchers found evidence of empathetic behavior in another creature, ravens.

Ban Animal Abusers from Owning Pets

Daniel Alas's curator insight, March 14, 2014 11:29 AM

If people don't care about something, why would that person own it. There is no reason for a person to own something they just want to injure. That's what punching bags are for. Selling animals just for the money is cruel, because animals should be free or in a good home.

Dogs in classroom helping students learn empathy

Dogs in classroom helping students learn empathy | animals on our planet | Scoop.it

The concept is pretty simple: bring kind rescue dogs into classrooms to help kids learn empathy and pique their interest in difficult subject matter. But the effects are profound.

 

“Our 5th grade children, I would say their demeanor has changed as a direct result of the compassion they have learned to show to an animal they know was a rescue animal,” Royall Elementary School principal Julie Smith said.

 

“Even for my toughest kids, the most street savvy, it almost physically transforms them into a child with empathy. "

Animal Aid: Government figures on effective stunning in UK slaughterhouses attacked as 'wildly inaccurate'

Animal Aid: Government figures on effective stunning in UK slaughterhouses attacked as 'wildly inaccurate' | animals on our planet | Scoop.it

The government has grossly underplayed animal suffering by issuing new figures stating that animals in British slaughterhouses are correctly stunned in more than 99 per cent of cases. This statistic comes from the number of mis-stuns witnessed and reported by Official Veterinarians who detailed just nine cases of mis-stuns in cows and three in sheep in 2013.
