Non-Human Animals

In 1998, a St. Bernard stood accused of savaging a resident of Lincoln, Mass. The owner found an animal-rights attorney to take the case by the name of Steven Wise.

Part of Mr. Wise’s defense was this statement, the dog was “… [A] good dog having a bad day.” He went on to defend his client arguing that the day had come for legal courts to offer full legal rights for “non-human animals.”

Do you think Mr. Wise would be happy with where our society is today?
