Previously signed on forcechange.. Animals have a far greater capacity to feel pain and experinnce emotions .than people seem to realize. If there is a lack of ability to experience feelings it is in humans who lack the capacity to feel compassion for other living things...

thank you for this news. animals incapable of feeling pain, or having emotion?! this government is the most idiotic, ridiculous, mentally ill, and pathetic government! they shouldn't be government. animals have a heart - they have feelings, and emotion. what did you learn in school? what did your parents teach you? you know they feel, and have emotion. you just don't want to renew the bill. you rather be greedy, sadistic donkey butts! I hope you all suffer for not renewing the bill.
