Photos of the Day: Kick SeaWorld out of the Rose Parade

Published by PETA.

PETA supporters and orca fans united yesterday to protest SeaWorld’s planned Tournament of Roses Parade float. Protesters pointed out that SeaWorld’s float—which depicts orcas leaping happy and free in the sea—bears no resemblance whatsoever to an orca’s life of intensive confinement at the marine park, where these magnificent animals are kept in tiny concrete tanks, often breaking their teeth on the underwater bars, and are forced to perform cheap, circus-style tricks.

Help keep cruelty out of the Rose Parade by letting the parade committee know that animal abuse is nothing to celebrate.
