One Response to Spain to Extends Rights to Apes

  1. That article states, “Keeping apes for circuses, television commercials or filming will also be forbidden.”

    OK, maybe I get circuses, but if apes are treated well is there something inherently wrong about a gorilla being put in front of a camera? I’m not sure I following Spain’s reasoning on that one.
