A terrible...and incomprehensible...blow to the animal welfare movement.

How could anyone be so stupid as to imagine that animals do not feel pain or emotions. The only reason for this insanity is to ease their own stupid conscience with regard to hunting killing and torturing animals to appease the blood thirsty assholes that they need to vote them into power. They are so transparent!

It is obvious that MP's do NOT feel emotion or pain. They are obviously too brain dead to see that animals feel more often than many humans!

This is really bad. And they call themselves civilized? F**** morons, it does not matter if you don't like animals or don't understand science: animals have a nervous system, right? A no-brainer!!!! So shared

This is a big step backwards for our animals in the 21st century - a shame ..... just as they are currently also the biggest market for the ivory trade !

A cruel decision to USE animals for hunting, entertainment, factory farming and in laboratories.
Throw the NO-voters in tiger enclosures and shark waters! Nobody needs these a**holes!!

In my opinion animals are able to have far more feelings, compassion, emotions and of course also pain like many humans seem to be able to.
