This video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s9Ib33R_FnY where an elk saves a small animal from drowning in its water dish. In the video it mentions that because the elk is in a ranch or reserve, all its basic needs are met and therefore can begin to use its brain for something other than survival as it usually would only be able to do in the wild. To me this means that animals have a potential for a much, much greater capacity for knowledge than we give them credit for, because not only did the elk save it, he thought for a long time about how to fit his head and antlers into the water dish to pull it out.
Awesome side note: Today the first FEDERAL measure was created to end the prohibition for marijuana
FUCK YES AMERICA, I hope it passes but either way it's a start.
