Spanish Court Rules Against Visiting Rights for Dog

"A Spanish court has ruled that dogs should not be treated like children with allocated visiting rights when it comes to divorce cases. A Spanish man was originally given permission by his wife to visit Yako, a golden retriever, when they separated but he appealed to a lower court when she stopped him from seeing the dog. The court ruled in his favor and set up visiting hours. But the provincial court of Barcelona then overturned that decision, saying it set a precedent for pets to be treated like children in divorce cases."
