The Uttarakhand High Court declared the entire animal kingdom including birds and aquatic animals a legal entity with rights of a living person. "The entity acts like a natural person but only through a designated person, whose acts are processed within the ambit of law," said HC. Hence, the animal kingdom could be represented by a custodian.
