And while that isn't a negative attribute, there are humans among us who prey on others by exploiting this emotional context. "Humane" is actually putting human attributes and attitudes into other species around us, regardless of whether they exist there or not. When people are repeating emotionally-charged phrases such as "inhumanely treated", along with "factory farms" and "puppy mills", in all cases they are stretching things a bit thin.
Humans do not know exactly and precisely what is being "felt" by any other species on this planet. And that is our particular problem, if you will. We can project that "if that (animal) were human, this is what they'd feel". And that's about it.
