So, Elephants Are Not People?

To be honest, I had no idea that an elephant could be considered a person. We don’t make those loud trumpet noises we hear from the tusked creatures . Our nose doesn’t hang that low to the ground nor does the Earth shake when we move around.

That didn’t stop NonHuman Rights Project from suing the Bronx Zoo to allow ‘Happy’ the 48 year old elephant to be given personhood. I don’t like the way elephants are indeed slaughtered for their tusks to make Ivory , but this lawsuit is a bit of a stretch.
