Chimps eat each other, and throw their own poop at each other.
If they get rights, then so to do they become held accountable for their actions.
I, for one, don't want to pay state funded zoos....er, JAILS, to keep them locked up.
Juvenile court - Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaAge of criminal responsibility
There is no uniform national age from which a child is accountable in the juvenile court system; this varies between states, with many setting 10 as the minimum. Not all minors who commit a crime are committed to juvenile (or adult) court.
Edit: the documentaries are called Wildest India. They're a real kick, so if you can stand documentaries I would definitely give them a chance.

Early voting in Georgia. On the 20th of October this old Goldwater conservative voted against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton by casting my vote for Gary Johnson. Neither Trump or Clinton belong within a million miles of the Oval Office.
However, in any case, I would agree that they have the "right" not to be treated with wanton cruelty, as with any other living creature. I simply wouldn't say that they are deserving of "human rights," per se.
I mean... Let's face it, if you found yourself on a lifeboat with five people, a chimpanzee, and no food to eat, it certainly wouldn't be a human being who "took one for the team" first.

"Men did not love Rome because she was great. She was great because they had loved her." -- G.K. Chesterton
It's a ridiculous concept, but it's not granting legal rights, so much as just enabling representation. It'll prevent animal cruelty, so I'm not actually against it.
"To waste, to destroy, our natural resources, to skin and exhaust the land instead of using it so as to increase its usefulness, will result in undermining in the days of our children the very prosperity which we ought by rights to hand down to them."~ Theodore Roosevelt (Message to Congress, Dec. 3, 1907)
