Rollin, Bernard (2019) Far more to sheep than meets the casual eye. Animal Sentience 25(7)
Lori Marino and Debra Merskin, Intelligence, complexity, and individuality in sheep
Marino & Merskin’s survey of the cognitive and social capacities of sheep is an eye-opener about the individuality and emotionality of this most maligned of all farm animals. My own eyes had already been opened by an adopted orphaned lamb, so much more like a dog as a companion animal than the mindless robot I had been conditioned to expect. I am morally certain that Marino & Merskin’s survey will have a similar effect on readers open to changing their minds.
