Why are Great Apes Property?

“If we’d simply said great apes are being cruelly treated and we should be less cruel, we would not have got people to think about the basic question of, ‘Well, what is their moral status? Why is it that though they have all these remarkable characteristics and qualities…Why is it that they’re still property?’”

– Peter Singer
