Human life is paramount
This refers to the cover story Out of control 16-31 August, 2015). I agree that animals have rights. But in cases such as this one, I believe that human right to life and property overrides everything else. Rogue monkeys, for instance, damage crops and are a danger to children. If the government is not able to keep such monkeys, or any other wild animal, away from human habitats, it must pay compensation to the affected person for any harm caused to them or to their property at the earliest.
