PETA Foundation Director of Animal Law Jared Goodman released a statement in response to the recent death of young Lagos, a dolphin held captive at SeaWorld San Diego:
History shows us that 8-year-old Lagos’ untimely death is par for the course at SeaWorld, where inquisitive, sensitive animals are imprisoned for life in tiny concrete tanks and condemned to swim in endless circles, stripped of everything that is natural and important to them. That his early death comes just days after the death of Obie the walrus reinforces the fact that SeaWorld offers animals nothing but misery and perhaps an early death.
PETA’s motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to use for entertainment.” More information about our campaign is available at SeaWorldOfHurt.com.
