Grieving chimps

Grieving chimps

This image was shot for National Geographic by Monica Szczupider and shows chimpanzees at the Sanaga-Yong Chimpanzee Rescue Center in Cameroon. The chimps are observing the body of an elder troop member named Dorothy just prior to burial. She died at 40 years of age, which is quite old for chimpanzees. The photo appears in the November issue of National Geographic Magazine in the "Visions of Earth" section.

That seems most illogical. First off, there is not a bridge of language between us, which leads me to my next point. How can you even expect them to have the same rights as us if they aren't even in the same psychological frequency as us. It's utterly illogical and ludicrous to even make that statement.
