Orlando, Fla. – Please find below a statement from PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman regarding SeaWorld’s first-quarter earnings report, which was released this morning:
This financial fluke is a one-off unless the company not only continues to shift its focus to non-animal attractions but also ends animal acts, and PETA predicts that it will do nothing to stop SeaWorld’s well-documented fall into oblivion. The company needs to accept that its only hope for sustained economic growth is to close its archaic animal prisons and start building coastal sanctuaries for all the orcas suffering in its tanks.
PETA’s motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to use for entertainment.” More information is available at SeaWorldOfHurt.com.
