Oregon Courts Reject Legal Status of Horse


EGG-NEWS has previously commented on repeated lawsuits brought by animal-rights activist on behalf of non-human primates to establish legal status. All have been rejected.

A new lawsuit in Oregon brought on behalf of a horse was similarly rejected by Washington County Judge John Knowles stating that "non-human animals are incapable of accepting legal responsibilities".

It is evident that if a horse or any other domestic animal is afforded legal status, lawyers will be suing on their behalf creating a deluge of litigation which would incapacitate the livestock industry.
