Lori Marino and Debra Merskin, Intelligence, complexity, and individuality in sheep
Marino & Merskin present evidence on key aspects of cognition, such as theory of mind, learning, emotional valence, and sociality, to make a convincing argument that sheep are due consideration as individual sentient beings.
