"So far as we know beasts are incapable either of sin or of virtue; therefore they can neither deserve pain nor be improved by it."

- C.S. Lewis, Fellow of Magdalen College, Oxford, 1940.

I'm still unsure on the whole "animals incapable of sin or virtue" thing, but it's an interesting quotation. I wish I could find the source.
