Orlando, Fla. – Below, please find a statement from PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman regarding SeaWorld’s third-quarter earnings report, which was released this morning:

The public has spoken: Roller coasters and other non-animal attractions are preferable to witnessing the misery and death of animals displayed in dismally small tanks.

PETA’s motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to use for entertainment.” More information is available at
