If animals started thinking like humans, they wouldn't be animals anymore. They couldn't simple start talking human, because they mind work very differently from ours. Language is just an expression.

I'd say it would depend on what the animal was, how it was feeling at that moment, and who was around to witness it.
Overall, I'd imagine it to be a bit of a shocked reaction, but that most people would come to accept it after about 6 months to a year...
Maybe people would start NOT throwing their trash everywhere when a cute deer would complain about a beer bottle causing her to slice open her leg a bit, then developing a bad infection from it (for example)

Just because they could talk doesn't mean they'd have much to say, and perhaps even no interest in doing so. Although a dog asking me for walks incessantly like that Simpsons episode would be quite annoying xD

hmm so if a dog said to me, let's breed together in human verbal language, would that still constitute as a rape?

I think you are overestimating the politeness of people. Some would likely go out of their way to throw trash everywhere just to spite the deer, if not kill her. Keep in mind, some humans can't get along with other humans (see racism).

true... but at least out where i live, where 90% of people are liberal democrats who are eco-friendly, I'd at least like to imagine the people who live out here would apologize.

Honestly If animals could talk, or i could talk to animals... well. I pry sit and have a better conversation with my cat, or a dog. or go find a wolf and just have better conversation then i could with humans... we as a society have become so "connected" because of technology that we actually became disconnected
i would totally chose siting on a river bed and chat with a animal then talk to my mother over the phone.

I'd prefer most anything over talking on the phone with someone :p
I'd love to have a conversation with some coons and other wildlife that lives up near me, and ask for their opinions on the 2016 Presidential race...

I imagine that a raccoon roasting trump would go viral pretty quick :p

Or these animals would likely maul you death considering they're wild
Or they'd just laugh at you and walk away
Or they'd probably maul you again since they're still just wild animals. Don't assume animals would be passive just because they can talk mate, considering that we've been able to talk for millenniums and only just recently have we actually not gouged out the eyes of our neighbors for eyeing our food wrong.

My house would just be my dogs endlessly yelling things like, WALK?! BALL?! TOY?! FOOD?!
My cat would say what she says now:

and also. "Feed me now! Be my servant now! Pay attention NOW"

That husky is so FFAAAAATTTTTT.... x33333 I just wanna hug him!!!!


Are ya sure he's not a Malamute? They're much bigger, similar looking dogs.

But if animals could talk, that would be great, I love to talk, and I'd have so many questions for my cat alone, it would probably drive him crazy. Then, to start taking walks in the woods, so I could arrange my animal-human TED Talks and hug fests!

One problem: What if they spoke all different languages, such as French, Swahili, and Urdu? Might be harder than we thought. A Siamese cat might speak Thai; a German Sheppard might speak German, a Poodle might speak French...
