New status for animals within the legal system

Posted on 26 December, 2010 at 13:51
LIVING PROPERTY *1071 VI. CONCLUSION

*LIVING PROPERTY: A NEW STATUS FOR ANIMALS WITHIN THE LEGAL SYSTEM
*

DAVID FAVRE* (Prof. of Law, Michigan State Univ.)
Conclusion (of article)
As developed in this Article, the proposition that animals can possess legal
rights is already supported by the reality of events within our legal
system. Animals already have a modest variety of legal rights within the
categories of weak (red), strong (blue), and preferred (green) rights. To
make a more coherent package of all the animal-related public policy issues,
it will be useful to acknowledge the existence of a fourth category of
property, living property. Once this new category is separated out from
other property, a focused scholarly consideration of the issues will result
in a new list of legal rights for at least some of these animals. This
Article has suggested both what some of the rights might be and how
traditional rules of property law might be modified to accommodate the
presence of this new category.

At this point in history, the non-human animals of our Earth are not our
brothers, nor our equals, but like our children.151 They have interests of
their own that deserve to be nurtured and protected from human harm, both in
the consideration of ethical acts and the laws that we humans implement on
their behalf.

Even though the title of your blog is very short but still it is catchy enough to manages the attraction at first sight and conveying the gist of the whole matter.

It is a great initiative to discuss about the animal rights. I really like that you compare the animals with our children.
