How Is PETA’s Wrecked Building Bad for SeaWorld?

Published by Michelle Kretzer.

When an SUV crashed through the windows of PETA’s Bob Barker Building on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles just over a week ago, no one was hurt—but the crash interrupted a SeaWorld protest planning meeting.

Here is a time-lapse video of the mural in the making:

In nature, orcas travel up to 100 miles every day with their complex and closely knit family groups, but at SeaWorld, they’re housed in incompatible groups in tanks that, to them, are the size of a bathtub. Stress and aggression lead them to break their teeth by snapping and gnawing at pool gates, and they’re given psychotropic drugs to quell aggression.

Tell SeaWorld to release its captive animals today.
