Pigeons grasp the abstract concepts of space and time
New research adds to the growing recognition that animals beyond humans and primates show abstract intelligence.
...
an organism does not have to perfectly mimic the human system to arrive at its own kind of intelligence.

Elephant Nature Park
Elephant Nature Park is an elephant rescue and rehabilitation center in Northern Thailand where you can volunteer and visit to help. We have been involved in dozens of rescues which have created our thriving elephant herd. The park provides a natural environment for elephants, dogs, cats, buffaloes and many other animals under our care.

Volunteers and visitors contribute to the healing while learning about their lives past and present. Arrange a visit to all our projects in Thailand, Cambodia and Myanmar.

The FBI’s Hunt for Two Missing Piglets Reveals the Federal Cover-Up of Barbaric Factory Farms
The pigs are so desperate to get out of their crates that they often spend weeks trying to bite through the iron bars until their gums gush blood, bash their heads against the walls, and suffer a disease in which their organs end up mangled in the wrong places, from the sheer physical trauma of trying to escape from a tiny space or from acute anxiety (called “organ torsion”).

The Selfie Monkey Goes to the Ninth Circuit - Motherboard
There's two related, but ultimately separate questions here:
1. Can a monkey have standing to sue under the Copyright Act?
2. Can a monkey be an author under the Copyright Act?

"It makes no sense to allow a monkey to enforce a copyright suit," she said. "But if you're going to do that, it's equally absurd to deny a monkey written notice of a right to intervene in a lawsuit."
