Instnct is the subconscious and intractable desire to live in company. There some animals who have particularly strong instinct to live in groups [herds].

Yes it sure is It is not learned
An animal cannot be instinct. It can have instincts, or it can be extinct. The koala has numerous instincts, which are behaviours which help it survive. For example, a koala…'s natural instinct is to climb certain species of eucalyptus trees, from which it can obtain all its nutritional needs, as well as its shelter. The koala is not extinct. It is still found in varying numbers through Australia's eastern states.
Killer instinct. It takes over when your in pain, predicting to be in pain or suffering. It also takes over when you have to defend yourself. It was most active when our ances…ors were hungry and went out hunting. Nowadays,its not as common but surely is present. When a bulgar breaks into your house and you take him down, Its completely natural you loose your mind and keep hitting him even when you should be aware you can kill him. All that 'beating' is supposed to ensure your instincts that you are safe. Its like a split personality that most people don't control in order to stay safe. When instincts are calmed you may realise you have gone too far. Other examples of when killer instinct is active are; killing mosquitoes, hitting a pillow when your mad, playing shooting games and defending someone important. No matter how immoral 'killer instinct' idea looks, Its something that allowed us to survive thousands of years in the wild and even does now

Eat, ruminate, breed, and flight or fight when the need arises. Cows will naturally run away from danger first before investigating because they are prey animals: flight i…s their key to survival if they can. If they must, they will turn and fight too if they feel they or their young are being threatened. Cows often will turn and choose fight before flight if they feel their calf is in danger.
