Judge: Promote recognition of animal legal rights

The Haifa District Court dismissed the petition of Suleiman Nasser, a resident of Kafr Samia, requesting relief from the conditions of his sentence for house arrest. Nasser is accused of tying a dog to his car and dragging the dog until died.


Judge Daniel Fish said in court that he supports the promotion of independent legal recognition of the rights of animals, as this will lead to greater levels of protection for them. (Ahiya Raved)
