Group not monkeying around to give chimps human rights

The Nonhuman Rights Project in New York filed a lawsuit Monday seeking freedom for caged chimpanzees. The suit is the first seeking legal rights for a nonhuman.

Chimpanzees are a step closer to being human.

The Nonhuman Rights Project filed a lawsuit on behalf of captived chimpanzees claiming there is scientific evidence that shows the animals are "self-aware and autonomous" and thus should be recognized as "legal persons" with certain fundamental legal rights, the organization said in a statement Monday..

The lawsuit was filed in New York Supreme Court and asks for the chimpanzees to be granted the right to "bodily liberty," the group states.

Just great. Now we will have even more spooks to contend with.
