Sure they can. Druids and other Animal Companion classes have been bumping Int up to 3 for years to get access to greater feat variety. Giving a Gorilla a greatsword is surprisingly effective.
Just because they have been doing it doesn't make it right.
Traits: An animal possesses the following traits (unless otherwise noted in a creature's entry).
Intelligence score of 1 or 2 (no creature with an Intelligence score of 3 or higher can be an animal).
Though there are passages that contradict that, so at best it is a GM discretion thing.

There was a blog written about this a few years ago. If you do a search for "monkey see monkey do", you should be able to find it.
