Animal Rights

Where did the idea of animal rights even come from?

Ive been wondering this from along time. Maybe it came from the depths of the city were people have nothing to do but think up crazy ideas to pass time. I, for the life of me, cannot figure out how people can even entertain such an ubserd idea. I can understand how domesticated animals should be taken care of (feed, water, shelter)  because we as people have made them accustomed to us waiting on them hand and foot. They have no wild instict left and they would surley die without care, but why in the world do they deserve rights?
