Spanish Apes have more rights than humans in some countries

Spain’s parliament approved a measure Wednesday to extend some human rights to gorillas, chimpanzees, bonobos, and orangutans, becoming the first country to explicitly acknowledge the legal rights of nonhumans.

This news is great for the animals, I am not too sure that they realise this though. If you randomly pick a human from India and an ape from Spain, the Spanish ape probably has a better chance of being treated. Think about it.
