Orlando, Fla. – Below, please find a statement from PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman regarding SeaWorld’s fourth-quarter earnings report, which was released this morning:
As PETA has long suggested, SeaWorld’s roller-coaster ride on earnings would stop if it released all the captive dolphins and whales to seaside sanctuaries. SeaWorld’s new CEO has the experience to move the parks more rapidly in that direction and build coastal sanctuaries for the miserable whales and drugged, forcibly impregnated dolphins, who will otherwise follow orcas like Kayla to a premature death in a cramped concrete tank.
PETA’s motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to use for entertainment,” and the group opposes speciesism, a supremacist worldview. More information is available at SeaWorldOfHurt.com.
