People I don’t like often call for increased cruelty to animals on the grounds they are not sentient. The Concise Oxford English Dictionary Luxury Edition defines sentient as able to perceive or feel things. A rabbit has ears to hear, eyes to see, a nose to smell. It clearly can feel pain, fear and sexual excitement. Clearly it is sentient. How can anyone in their right mind claim rabbits, whales, dolphins, seals, cattle, fish… are not sentient? It must be that these people don’t know what the word means. They seem to use the word to mean, I care about it’s welfare.
