In a move that shows that its lack of compassion doesn't stop with orcas, SeaWorld says it intends to once again allow trainers to enter pools containing frustrated 6-ton orcas, endangering their lives. And in case we weren't already SeaSick, SeaWorld chose to announce its plans on the one-year anniversary of the killing of trainer Dawn Brancheau by orca Tilikum.
Former SeaWorld trainers have publicly announced that going into the water with the whales puts their lives in danger. Please e-mail SeaWorld and tell it to protect human and animal lives by releasing its orca inmates before the next "prison riot" occurs.
