Anyone who's been to the zoo knows orangutans, gorillas and other great
apes are intelligent, playful and sometimes act like people. But now a
team of lawyers is trying to prove apes should have the same rights as
their evolutionary cousins - Homo Sapiens. Being a person "is a legal
term," said Steve Ann Chambers, a Seattle-based attorney who's also the
president of the Animal Legal Defense Fund. "It just means you have
interests that deserve to be protected."
