Give it up, humans: animals are just like us

GoGreenNation: I love this! I have never understood the prevailing wisdom that animals don’t think and feel like we do. Of course they do! We should respect all life on earth and appreciate our likenesses instead of our differences.>>>

But we are the only animals that have language. Gorillas have been signing “I don’t think so” to that idea for decades now.

I have files and files of amazing animal stories… I’ll post them here as I get the chance. Thanks for the story, Jeff!
