This isn't good news

I'm not known for being an animal lover or animal rights supporter. But I make an exception for Great Apes. These guys really are 99% human. They talk, use language creatively and can imagine and describe hypothetical events.

Personally, I think they have rights pretty close to human ones. They're also the best bet for real non-human intelligence we're likely to meet. It will be a tragedy if they're allowed to go extinct.
