Is this just plain ol’ gathering of evidence (but why, in a court room, and not by police detectives elsewhere?), or is this a move down the road towards animal rights?

I remember a Far Side cartoon showing a dog in the Witness box, captioned:
“He was a good dog, but that breed would turn on you.”

"Isn't it true that you say your owner's killer?" (whine)

"Did you bite him?" (Woof)

Outside the courtroom, the dog was asked how things were going with the trial, to which the pooch replied, “Ruff!”

Can you imagine the outcome of this trial?

What the lawyer says:
"Take a close look at the defendant and tell me, Fido, is this the man who killed your owner?"

What the dog hears:
"Blah blah blah blah blah, blah blah blah blah blah, Fido, blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah?"
