PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman released a statement regarding SeaWorld’s fourth-quarter and year-end 2015 financial results:

SeaWorld’s latest report confirms not only that the company has employed more than one spy to infiltrate and agitate at PETA but also that it values its spies more highly than the executives who have had their heads chopped off in droves, as at least one of the spies is still working at the company. SeaWorld’s finances continue to flop as animals continue to be found dead in its tiny tanks, with one death every single month since November. If SeaWorld had business savvy or common sense, it would modernize its business with coastal sanctuaries and virtual reality displays instead of building more dolphin prisons. The tawdry orca sideshows and despicable spying tactics are sinking SeaWorld’s ship.

PETA’s motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to use for entertainment,” and more information about our SeaWorld campaign is available at
