Pablo Escobar's 'cocaine hippos' can be legally recognized as people, U.S. court finds
The offspring of hippos once owned by Colombian drug kingpin Pablo Escobar can be recognized as people or “interested persons” with legal rights in the U.S. following a federal court order.

An animal rights groups is hailing the order as a milestone victory in the long sought efforts to sway the U.S. justice system to grant animals personhood status. But the order won’t carry any weight in Colombia where the hippos live, a legal expert said.

A judge in Connecticut called a petition filed four years ago by an animal rights group to grant personhood to three elephants in a traveling petting zoo “wholly frivolous.”

In another closely watched case, the New York Court of Appeals, the state’s highest court, agreed in May to decide whether an elephant at the Bronx Zoo should get human-like rights and be moved to a sanctuary.

Careful, they are people and may sue you for verbal assault and "hippo-nose" shaming.

Something tells me the promise of animal welfare will turn into humans being treated like animals, ie., 'cared for' against their will. Animals cannot grant consent using human language and are routinely confined, restrained, medically treated, sterilized, etc, against their will by the 'good' caretakers. This is exactly what all the controversy around covid measures are all about.
