Please read more carefully. I said animals do not have spiritual souls.
They have material souls.
Locomotive souls in the Aristotelian-Aquinas sense :p
Can animals sin? Well... what is sin? An offense to God. What do animals do? What's innate to their nature created by God. Ergo, they cannot sin for they only act on what they're naturally inclined to do, and yes that doe also mean killing humans for those rare cases. Do they go to heaven because they have no sin? No, they stop existing as a soul after bodily death. They were created for us on earth, not heaven.
