The Inner World of Farm Animals: Their Amazing Intellectual, Emotional, and Intellectual Capacities : Chickens can count. Pigs are smarter than poodles. Cows form close friendships. Turkeys know one another by their voices, and sheep recognize faces of other sheep, and of people. Far from lacking thoughts and feelings, barnyard creatures demonstrate sophisticated problem-solving abilities, possess rich social lives, and feel a wide range of emotions. In other words, they're much like humans in countless ways. And, like us, they suffer physical pain and mental anguish. In Intelligence, Empathy & Love, Amy Hatkoff combines the latest research on the emotional and intellectual capacities of farm animals with touching stories and soulful photos to bring their inner world to life and she joins the growing call for treating these sentient, feeling beings with greater compassion and respect.
