According to the Animal Welfare Institute, the roles between different species in the animal world are not as rigid as people once thought. In the past, these relations used to be seen through the so-called ‘food web’, and even when there were exceptions to this, they were usually viewed as arrangements in which one or both animals could benefit from their partnership.
In recent times, there has been a paradigm shift and animals are no longer seen purely as simple, instinctive beings. And while science continues to delve deeper into interspecies relationships, you can continue thinking about animal emotions while stirring your own.
