Should a captive chimpanzee have the same rights as a “legal person”?

Rights Group Is Seeking Status of ‘Legal Person’ for Captive Chimpanzee

Chimpanzees are not people, no matter how they are dressed up for commercials, but perhaps they are close enough that they deserve some of the same rights humans have.

No they deserve to be treated as any other animal. Follow animal rights guidelines.

http://www.aspca.org/fight-cruelty/advo ... uelty-laws


Laws relating to animals can vary widely from state to state. To enable you to find your state's laws quickly and easily, the ASPCA has partnered with the Michigan State University College of Law's Animal Legal & Historical Center to share its online database of animal-related laws, and their penalties, from all 50 states and the District of Columbia. This database is updated and expanded on a regular basis.

Once you've clicked on your state from the menu below, a new webpage will open where you will find the state's different categories of animal laws organized in a chart. Find animal cruelty laws by clicking on the link next to the box that says "Consolidated Cruelty Statutes."

Feeding fish to seals?

Feeding Mice to Snakes?

You could go crazy trying to justify things!

from the article.

The use of habeas corpus actions is a time-honored legal strategy for addressing unlawful imprisonment of human beings. Mr. Wise argues in a 70-plus-page memo rich with legal, scientific and philosophical references that being human is not essential to having rights. He argues that captive chimps are, in fact, enslaved, and that the same principles apply to them as to humans who were enslaved.
Tommy, “is being held captive in a cage in a shed at a used-trailer lot.”


this isn't just for Tommy - it's for all creatures suffering forced imprisonment.

Legally no, morally yes.
My feelings are the same for chimps as they are for the killer whales...
wild animals should not be in cages (or pools).
