Scientists Say Dolphins Should Be Treated As Non-Human Persons

From Current:

The researchers argue that their work shows it is morally unacceptable to keep such intelligent animals in amusement parks or to kill them for food or by accident when fishing. Some 300,000 whales, dolphins and porpoises die in this way each year.

I think this is an important step into a world where animals aren’t used as a commodity.  More research coupled with more advances in cruelty free foods will hopefully lead to a day where eating animals and using them for our own gain will be considered barbaric.

Granted it is ironic that we needed to have dolphins in captivity to find out that it’s very inhumane to even have them in captivity…
