SUNY chimp case questions animals' right to freedom. When a court hearing was ordered to determine whether two chimpanzees, named Hercules and Leo, are being “unlawfully detained” by the State University of New York at Stony Brook, the primates (and their lawyers) made a bit of history.

SUNY chimp case questions animals' right to freedom

No, New York State Supreme Court Justice Barbara Jaffe did not decree that the chimps had all the rights that human beings have — as some observers initially thought when she granted a “writ of habeas corpus.” (Generally, only prisoners use habeas corpus to petition for their freedom.) By the next day, the judge had scratched out the habeas corpus reference in her order to show cause. She is simply requiring the parties — without the chimps — to show up in court and plead their cases. Savegporangutans. Savegporangutans.

Orphaned Baby Orangutans Are Thrilled To Ride To Forest School In Wheelbarrows. What could be sweeter than a wheelbarrow full of excited young orangutans heading off to play in the forest?

Orphaned Baby Orangutans Are Thrilled To Ride To Forest School In Wheelbarrows

Perhaps the fact that it was made possible thanks to people like you who donated to keep the little ones happy. Facebook/International Animal Rescue Life is abustle with activity at an orphaned orangutan rehabilitation center run by International Animal Rescue (IAR) in Indonesia. There, some 80 playful orange primates awaken each morning eager to begin their day learning about life in the surrounding forests.

Updated: Judge’s ruling grants legal right to research chimps

The words “writ of habeas corpus” have been struck out, suggesting that the court has made no decision on whether Hercules and Leo—two research chimpanzees at Stony Brook University in New York—deserve to be treated as legal persons. The Nonhuman Rights Project has responded to the amendment, stating, “This case is one of a trio of cases that the Nonhuman Rights Project has brought in an attempt to free chimpanzees imprisoned within the State of New York through an ‘Article 70-Habeas Corpus’ proceeding.

These cases are novel and this is the first time that an Order to Show Cause has issued. We are grateful for an opportunity to litigate the issue of the freedom of the chimpanzees, Hercules and Leo, at the ordered May hearing.” Le langage secret des gibbons déchiffré pour la première fois par des scientifiques.
