SeaWorld is in deep trouble and hot water since Blackfish showed the mental anguish of orcas taken from the great oceans and trapped for eternity in SeaWorld’s swimming pools—and now court documents have revealed that SeaWorld also pumps these marine slaves full of psychotropic drugs in order to force them to perform stupid tricks. If SeaWorld executives were incarcerated within our prison system, they would experience luxurious accommodations by comparison with those of the highly social, intelligent marine animals they imprison, which cause them to lash out, chew their own teeth to the nubs and attack their trainers. SeaWorld can dress the issue up however it likes, but when investors want out, it’s a sign that the end is near.
