    Humans are the only animals on the planet that are known to have developed a legal system and prisons.

    Because humans know exactly what they are doing. We use our conscience, animals just use their in built instincts and usually kill or fight for defence or to eat. Humans don't need to do those two things anymore unless we are being cornered.

    Historically (and stupidly) animals have been put through mock trials and actual executions. But in most cases when an animal kills a human in modern times they're put down, as in the case of violent dogs.

    Actually, animals that kill humans are automatically euthanized.
