Emotions are very subjective and complex. I should have noted that IMO that hate is closely related to anger and spite and fear, all of which I have observed with my own pets. I'm not suggesting that animals hate the way we do, such as ". Ihate black people or gays" but rather more "watered down" or basic. Also the more complex the animal the more complex the emotional response.

To answer your question... Captive elephants that go on rampages, killer whales that have breached to land on their trainers purposfully (this has happened)

From my observations, emotional behaviour is instinctual to all life, how could social groups (herds, packs,family units) exist without them?

Lions seem to have a deep hatred for hyenas and will actually spray where the hyenas have left their mark. I don't believe different-species overmarking happens with any other animal.

I don't know about that. Seems a lot like a wedding ring to me.


By that I mean...marking territory. :coffeecanuck:

It doesn't matter how good looking he or she is, some where, someone is tired of his or her's crap.
