Animal rights activists are pushing for human rights to be granted to apes... and especially to one chimp in particular named Hiasl. There motives are good - they want to ensure that apes like Hiasl are kept safe and well-provided for. Indeed, the way that apes have been treated in the name of science is appalling. But whether apes will actually be granted human rights is definitely a stretch and it will be interesting to see how this one plays out.
