Giving legal rights to animals ...

Listen here to Wild Time Radio in conversation with animal rights lawyer Steve M. Wise from the "nonhuman rights project", which is the only organisation working toward actual LEGAL rights for members of species other than our own. Their mission is to change the common law status of at least some nonhuman animals from mere “things,” which lack the capacity to possess any legal right, to “persons,” who possess such fundamental rights as bodily integrity and bodily liberty, and those other legal rights to which evolving standards of morality, scientific discovery, and human experience entitle them.
