Does the 13th Amendment apply to critters? Can whales be plaintiffs? People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals thinks so, and has filed suitin a San Diego court to emancipate killer whales from Sea World facilities in San Diego and Orlando:
PETA argues that continuing the whales’ “employment” at SeaWorld violates the 13th Amendment to the US Constitution, which prohibits slavery.
To whales, all people are Nazis.
And to krill, all whales are Nazis.
And to plankton, all krill are Nazis.
Congratulations, PETA. You’ve discovered food chains.
