Please find a statement below from PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman regarding SeaWorld’s fourth quarterly earnings report, released this morning:
SeaWorld can’t keep its earnings up, and its ticket sales are the worst since before the company went public in 2013. It knows that its orca prisons are failing, and its only hope of staying afloat lies with PETA’s shareholder resolution calling for seaside sanctuaries for the animals who have suffered in tiny concrete tanks for far too long.
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.
