SUMMARY:

This comment concerns the judgment of the Federal Criminal Court of Appeal of the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires (Argentina), 18th December 2014, on the habeas corpus which was filed for the protection of an oranguntan in the Zoo of Buenos Aires. In its decision, the court refers the case to the Criminal, Misdemeanor Offenses Justice of Buenos Aires, but at the same time, it states that, from a dynamic and not static legal interpretation, the animal should be recognized as a subject of rights, as non-human subjects (animals) have rights, too, and that means they deserve protection by the corresponding field of competency.
