    I think “non-rational” creatures would kill those that they didn’t understand or threatened them, if they had the means. Or would run away. Fight or flight.

    You have to have a rational mind to lock up and study a creature – even if, in the course of those studies you are led to dissection or vivisection (which makes me sick just thinking of it but there we go).
