19 Photos That Prove Animals Can Have the Deepest Feelings Too

At the same time, people still debate whether animals can experience some of these same emotions. But those who live close to animals and have an opportunity to observe them every day, know for sure — their emotions are more vivid than we might expect, and they are never sacred to express them.
