Octopuses and lobsters have feelings and should be included in the animal sentience bill, a group of Conservative MPs has said.
These animals are discriminated against in legislation because their “neurological architecture differs from our own”.
“…What matters, though, is whether that experience entails conscious experience of pleasure and pain. We believe that the evidence is sufficient to show that these animals do experience pleasure and pain.”June 18, 2021 at 9:50 am #219226Bijou DrainsParticipant

The European Commission has said it will work towards new laws to phase out caged animal farming across the bloc. Rabbits, young hens, quails, ducks and geese would be affected by the changes.
“Animals are sentient beings and we have a moral, societal responsibility to ensure that on-farm conditions for animals reflect this,” EU health commissioner Stella Kyriakides said.
The new legislation will be proposed by 2023 and the changes would be gradually phased in by 2027.July 1, 2021 at 6:03 am #219830

State regulators set a quota of 119 wolves out of an estimated statewide population of 1,000, but they issued an unusually high number of permits – 1,548 of them – and allowed hound hunters to participate on the first day, rather than requiring them to wait until the far less efficient rifle hunters and trappers had taken their share.
The result was astounding. After just two and a half days, hunters were already approaching the limit. Before regulators could shut down the hunt, 216 wolves had been killed – overshooting the quota by 83%.July 31, 2021 at 10:56 am #220439Matthew CulbertKeymaster
