habeas corpus for Happy!

 

For the first time in history, an American judge ruled that even elephants have rights. Happy is a 47-year-old Asian elephant who has lived in solitary confinement in the Bronx Zoo, New York, for twelve years.

The case of Happy is the second time in US legal history that a habeas corpus is “negotiated” for a non-human animal, and the first time a case has been made for an elephant.

Now Happy can complain against the zoo. The decision was based on the question of whether Happy is rated as a person or as a thing.
