The orangutan named Sandra sits in her enclosure at Buenos Aires’ Zoo in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Monday, December 22, 2014. An Argentine court has ruled that Sandra, who has spent 20 years at the zoo, should be recognized as a person with a right to freedom. The ruling would free Sandra from captivity and have her transferred to a sanctuary in Brazil after a court recognized the primate as a “non-human person” which has some basic human rights.

Sandra, a 29-year-old orangutan, is pictured at Buenos Aires’ zoo, on December 22, 2014. Sandra got cleared to leave a Buenos Aires zoo she has called home for 20 years, after a court ruled she was entitled to more desirable living conditions. Argentina’s Association of Professional Lawyers for Animal Rights (AFADA) filed a “habeas corpus” writ – a form of legal redress against unlawful imprisonment – arguing she was “suffering an unwarranted confinement”. The AFADA is in the process of securing Sandra’s release to transfer her to a sanctuary where she is expected to live a more comfortable and happy life, lawyers said.

This stunning set of pictures shows an intense battle between a seal and octopus – in which the seal emerges as the winner by gulping the octopus down in one. The hungry seal spots the octopus and decides that it would make a great breakfast, so goes in for the killer move. But the little octopus puts up a fight by wriggling about and wrapping its clingy tentacles around the seal’s face. After a long struggle, the big seal got the better of the little sea animal and gulped him down in one. (Photo by Solent News/Splash News)
