Rainsford thinks animals are for sport. He doesn't think animals' have feelings, only instinct. He feels that animals are meant to be hunted by people, this is the natural order of things. Whiney thinks there are ethical concerns hunting animals. Whitney thinks that animals might have more complex emotions than Rainsford thinks.
