QotD: Morality in Animals

...just like us, canines are animals whose evolutionary history as a social species has given them an essential sense of what in human terms we would call "right and wrong."  Numerous studies have demonstrated that both canines and chimps know when they are being treated equitably among their peers and when they are not, and their behavior registers this knowledge.  According to Bekoff, much as humans use prisons and enforced socialization, wild coyotes have a sense of proper coyote behavior and ostracize individuals that fail to observe it.'
--Dan Flores in Coyote America, p 93.
