Hitting Stingrays with Baseballs?!

sting ray

Last night, for the third time—and the second time this season—a baseball was hit into the stingray touch tank at the Tampa Bay Rays' Tropicana Field. 

Common sense would tell you that forcing sensitive  animals to spend their entire lives swimming in circles in tiny tanks—AND also subjecting them to loud noises, rowdy crowds, and the stress of having up to 50 people at once sticking their hands into the tanks—is bad for the animals, but it gets worse. 

Rays require very specific conditions in order to live safely and comfortably, and many die in touch tanks. 

TAKE ACTION: Urge the Rays to ditch the tank, rehab these animals, and release them back into their ocean homes.
