"The orcs-from-elves theory is only one possible theory - Tolkien never exactly clarifies where the orcs came from. Some dislike the idea that orcs were literally corrputed elves as that would imply the orcs have genuine sentience and intelligence, which Tolkien implies on a few occasions is not the case, so some suggest the orcs are corruptions of various non-sentient animals."

Unless part of the corruption was a magical lobotomy/mental degradation.
