I don't know that whether animals have souls or not. They might be conscious and thus might have something simalar to souls. The bible does mention animals in heaven so they just might have something. Now, understand that even if animals didn't have them, they could still simulate feeling like compassion and such, even if they don't actually experience them. So they would be like robots. Understand that everything they do is based on extinct. I am not sure if animals can chose I just don't know. Personally I would like to believe animals are conscious like us but if it is not consistent with scripture then I can't believe it.

Hmm, thats very interesting.
