Instinctive behavior (like knowing how to suck to get milk, or having the desire to copulate) and understanding of morality (stealing and killing are detrimental to society) are two different things.

Make a dog lie down with a cat, that dog then recognizes the other animal as a member of the family, the dog may still chase the cat, the cat may scratch the dog but the dog will not kill the cat, it is instinctive, but there is more than just survival instincts in the genetic code.
