Do you think all animals are capable of feeling fear? Distress? Pain? We would certainly hope so.
Why is this question important?
The EU Lisbon Treaty and specifically article 13 recognises animals as sentient beings, meaning that they can feel emotion, pain - and suffering. While we are part of the EU, all animals are protected under this legislation and additionally under our Animal Welfare Act 2006.
But, As we prepare to leave the EU, laws pertaining to animal welfare will be rewritten into UK legislation. And this week, the legislation which recognised animals as sentient beings was overturned by MPs in preparation for the EU Withdrawal bill.
What does this mean? It means Animal sentience does not need to be considered in the development of future international trade or research agreements.
Why does this matter? This means that live animal exports and trading with counties with poor welfare standards is likely. It means that certain categories of animals lose the little protection they had.
But surely the UK already has an Act that protects all species? No, The Animal Welfare Act 2006 does not use the word sentient. Furthermore it does not protect laboratory animals or wildlife. These two categories of animals are expressly not part of the act.

Only a dying horse! pull off the gear, And slip the needless bit from frothing jaws, Drag it aside there, leaving the road way clear, The battery thunders on with scarce a pause. Prone by the shell-swept highway there it lies With quivering limbs, as fast the life-tide fails, Dark films are closing o’er the faithful eyes That mutely plead for aid where none avails.
Onward the battery rolls, but one there speeds Heedlessly of comrades voice or bursting shell, Back to the wounded friend who lonely bleeds Beside the stony highway where he fell.
Only a dying horse! he swiftly kneels, Lifts the limp head and hears the shivering sigh Kisses his friend, while down his cheek there steals Sweet pity’s tear, “Goodbye old man, Goodbye”.
No honours wait him, medal, badge or star, Though scarce could war a kindlier deed unfold; He bears within his breast, more precious far Beyond the gift of kings, a heart of gold. ...
