We do act like animals, to be more specific, we behave like the animal called homo sapiens. Just like crocodiles behave like crocodiles and elephants behave like elephants. Apparently, the assumption is that we should behave like some other species of animal. But why? We don't expect a tarantula to behave like a Thomson's gazelle, or a wombat to behave like a woodpecker. So why would anyone expect humans to behave like some other species?
