The US District Court for the Southern District of Ohio has granted the right to be legally recognized to a community of around 135 hippopotamus-people living in Colombia. The Animal Legal Defense Fund (ALDF), acting on their behalf, is requesting two American experts to give information in a Colombian court case regarding what medicines the Colombian government should give them. ALDF is also acting on behalf of a horse-person named Justice, and suing a human who had mercilessly abused him. Furthermore, The Nonhuman Rights Project is representing an elephant-person named Happy in court, who they describe as being “unlawfully imprisoned” in a New York City zoo and say should be granted freedom so she can move to an elephant sanctuary.
The United States is a recipient of five Shining World Leadership Awards for Compassion, three Shining World Leadership Awards for Good Governance, seven Shining World Leadership Awards for Promoting Healthy Living, and Shining World Leadership Awards for Good Governor, Justice, Protection, and Environmental Protection; and a laureate of 24 Shining World Leadership Awards for Compassion, three Shining World Leadership Awards for Protection, two Shining World Leadership Awards for Loving Care, a Shining World Leadership Award for Good Governance, a Shining World Peace Leader Award, Shining World Caring Leadership Award, and Shining World Super Loving Care Leadership Award. Such love-filled news, United States courts, that you are granting our animal-people friends their right to legal hearings.
In the grace of Heaven, may the animal-people protection laws of all countries soon be fully enforced, as we free our gentle co-inhabitants from their unjust situations.
Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Respectfully and tearfully present the Shining World Leadership Award for Justice to the US District Court for the Southern District of Ohio, with high salute, gratitude, and praises, in God’s Love and Mercy. May Divine protection be always with you, as you continue to kindly protect the defenseless.”
