Short summary: Some people in Austria want to declare a chimpanzee belonging to a bankrupt zoo a person so that they can get legal guardian rights for him.
They fell through with it in court, so now they're going to human rights court about it.
What are your thoughts on this? What would the legal implications be should this actually not get laughed out of court?
Practically, a chimp does not share human DNA and is not able to learn like a human.
But then developmentally "challenged" or infertile people might technically not be called persons either, the chimp's advocates claim.
