Orangutan and the Hound

This is a great video from the National Geographic Channel, featuring an orangutan who befriends a lost dog.

Among the many great aspects of this story, is the part noting the orangutans will share food they are given – even handing half of a piece of a treat back to a handler.

Sharing, having fun, making friends – it’s all evidence of state of consciousness and self-awareness, and thus a higher level of intelligence.
It’s so important to use this evidence as determining factors in setting standards as to how we should treat animals.
