快乐大象:第一个四条腿的人?

什么是一个人?

当我们听到“人”这个词时,我们可能会直觉地认为这只是“人类”的另一个术语:你的妈妈,你的老师,你的朋友 - 大象怎么样?

快乐亚洲大象

快乐的是一个49岁的女亚洲大象。她出生在野外,可能在泰国,并以800美元的价格出售给现在已经存在的狮子县Safari,Inc。在加利福尼亚州附有五个大象小牛。1977年,所有六只大象都搬迁到美国的马戏团和动物园。

讽刺地命名的幸福被送往布朗克斯动物园,兄弟姐妹脾气暴躁,作为野生亚洲单轨展的一部分:在这里,大象被迫“乘坐游乐设施,参加战争比赛,并表现伎俩”。

Following the euthanasia of Happy’s elephant Bronx companions on the grounds of poor health, she has lived alone since 2006 spending ‘most of her time indoors in a large holding facility lined with elephant cages, which are about twice the length of the animals’ bodies.’

乍一看,快乐可能似乎是一个悲惨的,虽然是法律上不起眼的命运。然而,2005年,快乐是第一位通过镜子自我识别测试的大象,表明自我意识 - 一个人格谅解的重要组成部分。

因此,幸福的积极镜子自我识别试验因此被用作她的律师,史蒂文明智的关键证据,向普通法律撰写的普通法律撰写的诉讼。Habeas Corpus是一个要求一个人从非法监禁中发布的令人作品。Wise demanded ‘recognition of Happy’s legal personhood and fundamental right to bodily liberty as well as her transfer to an elephant sanctuary.’ This is only the second time in US legal history that a habeas corpus Order has been issued on behalf of a non-human animal and marks the first time in history that the highest court of any English-speaking jurisdiction will hear a habeas corpus case for a non-human.

为什么这是重要的?

If granted, Wise’s petition for habeas corpus would not only allow Happy to live out her senior years in a sanctuary appropriate for a physical and mental needs, but it would also represent the first time in history that a non-human animal would be granted a legal right historically reserved for humans. This would be a landmark victory for动物权益律师认为动物应该在法庭上有合法权利。
