Heard on the news just now that some Austrian loon has applied to the Austrian High Court to become the legal guardian of a chimpanzee. The chimp is male, 25 years old and, like most adult chimps, strong, vicious and basically wild and uncontrollable.
Legal owner, as the sanctuary where the chimp resides after being rescued from an animal smuggler is being closed, maybe. Legal guardian, give me a break!
I think it is only a matter of time before some other loon applies to a court somewhere for their goldfish to be given power of attorney!
