So those places all consider animals to be equal to people? To what extent? Do you have to pay for expensive animal organ transplants? Can animals run for mayor in those places?
Those are where the term has been adopted into the laws. Now the door is open. As I said before, they will try anything to drastic until they have implimented the cahnge in many more places. Then they can test the waters and keep building on it. This is not an immediate devestation for pet owners, it is the beginning. Which is the best place to stop it.
