Ok, now I’ve heard of everything – a Charter of Rights and Freedoms for animals to call their own?
An animal rights group from Canada has proposed the ground-breaking “Charter of Rights and Freedoms for Animals” as not only a way to further the protection of animals but (in my opinion) further the agenda of this one particular Animal Rights group.
An organization calling themselves ‘Animal Justice’ launched the idea which would “guarantee the rights and freedoms that make life worth living, and give all animals a chance to have their interests represented in court.”
The group claims there is a huge gap between how Canadians care about animal welfare and how the legal system views it, and are hoping a petition draws the attention of policymakers.
According to the group’s lawyer: “A charter would give clear guidelines on how animals are to be treated and how we expect to live with them… free from suffering, live meaningful lives which they can express natural behaviours and socialize.”
It actually took me a few seconds to check the calendar, as I was convinced it was April 1st and this was all a big joke.
Don’t get me wrong, I love animals and I’m a huge proponent of conservation and wildlife management, but come on now people, give your head a shake!
