Animals are not people. Just like corporations are not people. Lawyers fuck up everything they get their hands on.

With that said, animals in our care deserve the best we can give them. Zoos often do not live up to this. The ones that don't should be closed.

Giving animals human rights just opens up a whole new field of legal representation for these lawyers and the next thing you know a law firm will be suing you on behalf of you dog.
