ABSTRACT

The animals are living beings we share the planet with. The relation between humans and animals were conducted under the law of the jungle for long time. Since man is considered as reasonable being for legal efects on human relations, this consideration is denied as for our relation to animals, with wich we mantain atavic conducts based on cruelty, enhanced by modern tecnology. Rationality, emblem of human superiority, is not just a mere source of rights, but especiality of duties and responsabilities. Our conduct towards them is clearly one of them. A serious recognition of the animal dignity as a holder of thelos, at the same extent as we are, but in diferent ways, must be the begining to enact legal disposition on the issue. Doing so, we will prove to ourselves that we deserve being called rationals and help us to constribute to create a more peaceful planet.
