Our New Clients
I'm happy to share with you the news that, after years of careful preparation, we have filed the world's first nonhuman rights lawsuit on behalf of captive elephants, demanding recognition of their legal personhood and right to bodily liberty.
As reported by the Washington Post, NBC News, Newsweek, and other outlets, our clients are Beulah, Karen, and Minnie, three elephants held captive at Connecticut’s Commerford Zoo and used for decades in traveling circuses, fairs, and other forms of entertainment. We're asking the court to release them to PAWS ARK 2000 natural habitat sanctuary, where their right to bodily liberty will be respected. How you can help:
As we make clear in our legal arguments, elephants are autonomous beings. It’s time to recognize their fundamental rights.
Thank you as always for your support, and stay tuned!
