Horses running around freely have brainwaves that are calming in nature, while those that are cooped in their lonely stables are depressed. Or at-least that's what the headset worn by horses show us in an experiment. If this reminds you of our times during the lockdown at home, you are right. Animals like pigs, lobsters, crabs, octopuses and many more have been found sentient (which means, they can feel emotions and can have mental health issues, just like we all do). In this episode, 11-year old Niranjan discusses how laws are changing to recognise these scientific discoveries.
For instance, some countries in Europe are banning caged hens, some others are banning fur farming. Amsterdam will no longer allow customers in restaurants to boil lobsters alive and consume them. All a mark of our recognition that animals feel emotions – including depression, anger, pain or even excitement.
