Oregon Lawsuit for Chimp

BEND, Ore., July 2 (UPI) -- A lawsuit started by an Oregon animal sanctuary may soon give chimpanzees and other animals additional rights in the U.S. legal system, a report said.

The Portland Oregonian reported Monday a lawsuit initially filed by Oregon's Chimps Inc. against a Texas animal sanctuary could potentially be a landmark legal case.

Chimps Inc. had received two chimps from Texas' Primarily Primates Inc. last fall when the San Antonio sanctuary was found to have unfit conditions for its inhabitants.
