If this nonsense appeared in a novel, readers would cry, "Too implausible!"
Spew alert! Set down your beverage before reading on.
From Be Sure You're RIGHT, Then Go Ahead, citing this source:
A bit of news from a California federal court will cause you to shout along with Charlton Heston that “It’s a madhouse! A madhouse!”In a moment of lucidity judge ruled against PETA.
The court is going “to decide for the first time in US history whether amusement park animals are protected by the same constitutional rights as humans.”
The issue is the result of a lawsuit that PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) filed in a “San Diego court on behalf of five orcas named Tilikum, Katina, Corky, Kasatka and Ulises. . . . PETA argues that continuing the whales’ ‘employment’ at SeaWorld violates the 13th Amendment to the US Constitution, which prohibits slavery.”
This case ever getting to court in the first place is mind boggling.
