Los Angeles – Please find a statement below from PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman regarding SeaWorld’s first-quarter earnings report, released this morning:
SeaWorld’s earnings are as dismal as ever, but it’s still separating animals from their lifelong companions and sentencing baby orcas to miserable lives in concrete cells. As Ringling Bros. circus prepares to shut down this month because of its failure to evolve, SeaWorld could save itself by not fighting a losing battle against the sea change of public opinion and set a plan immediately to move these long-suffering animals to seaside sanctuaries.
PETA’s motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to use for entertainment.” For more information, please visit PETA’s website SeaWorldOfHurt.com.
