Orangutan granted ‘personhood’ settles into new Florida home

udge Elena Liberatori’s landmark ruling in 2015 declared that Sandra is legally not an animal, but a non-human person, thus entitled to some legal rights enjoyed by people, and better living conditions.

“With that ruling I wanted to tell society something new, that animals are sentient beings and that the first right they have is our obligation to respect them,” she told The Associated Press.

Does the democrat party see a new voting block? Would be far more informed than most of them! hahahaha I kid I kid. .....

Seriously though what do you think about this "personhood" status for primates such as this orangutan?

Gotta love the misleading headlines, I was expecting a 5000 sq ft mcmansion at least!
