Super Mandrill's return to Blackstone delayed pending refit.The Super Mandrill who had been in federal custody at an undisclosed location was to be returned to Blackstone Prison this week. However given security concerns after the recent escape, he is being kept at an undisclosed location.
Federal Authorities have yet to recognize any rights for the Super Mandrill, but a federal court judge has ordered that he not be euthanized until a panel of judges and others formally evaluate his sentience. Many groups, while admitting his criminal past, have argued that the Super Mandrill cannot be treated simply as another animal, to be disposed of as we will.
The Supreme Court has agreed to hear the case.
