Do therians believe they were animals in a past life?
Some do, but not all. Reincarnation is certainly one popular explanation for therianthropy, but it's far from the only one. Therians can follow virtually any religion, and not all believe in reincarnation. But for some who do, it does seem a reasonable explanation for their feelings.
It's also consistent with the beliefs some ancient pagan cultures held about reincarnation - the Celts, in particular, seem to have believed that the soul might experience lives as many different creatures during its evolution.
