Orlando, Fla. – During today’s annual meeting of shareholders, SeaWorld dodged PETA’s question. PETA had asked the company to pour some of its profits into developing seaside sanctuaries and to stop breeding dolphins and whales, but SeaWorld deflected to praise its “zoological settings”—and didn’t address breeding at all.
Please see the following statement from PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman:
SeaWorld isn’t defending its breeding program, because drugging and forcibly breeding generations of dolphins and whales for a miserable life in captivity is indefensible. The company seems intent on misleading shareholders as PETA drags it, kicking and screaming, toward making meaningful changes for animals.
