Group says chimps are like people - level 1
Two chimps live at a university. The university is in New York in the USA. The chimps help people study. A group does not like this. It wants the chimps to go to a sanctuary.
The group will go to a judge. It will say four things. First, chimps are smart. Second, chimps are like people. Third, you cannot keep people in jail unlawfully. Fourth, the university is like a jail for the chimps.
This is the first time that this will happen. The group hopes that it will win. Then it will help more smart animals. These are elephants, dolphins and whales.
Difficult words: sanctuary (a safe place), judge (a person who decides who is right or wrong), unlawful (something against the laws or the rules).
