We didn't always think this way, but then we got "modern."
Rene Descartes, the madman often called a philosopher, claimed that animals do not feel pain. This justified the enjoyment he got from operating on them while they were still alive.
Somehow this bizarre raving of an unbalanced mind became the scientific norm in the West. Whole industries have grown up based on the belief that animals feel nothing and there screams of pain when injured or sorrow when isolated and removed from their nature and their fellow beast are merely mindless reflexes that mean nothing.
You have to be very "well educated" to believe this obvious contradiction of common sense.
