Here’s a good one! The Swiss could soon be voting on whether lawyers should be allowed to defend animals in court. The Swiss agency for the protection of animals (PSA) submitted a petition today to the federal government to introduce state lawyers for animals. It made the request after having collected about 150,000 signatures, more than the 100,000 needed to prompt a referendum to introduce a new law. The aim is to further crack down on the mistreatment of animals.If the referendum passes, those animals that can’t afford attorneys will be provided representation at the taxpayers’ expense. It’s a "ruff" job but I suppose when you get the bit between your teeth….!! Hat-tip to my friends at Moonbattery!
