SeaWorld Endangers People Too

Published by PETA.

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.

PETA members gather outside SeaWorld Orlando to mark the one-year anniversary of the death of trainer Dawn Brancheau.

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.
