What if SeaWorld's new commercial told the truth? "Because you know what whales hate? The ocean." #LOLPosted by PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) on Tuesday, March 29, 2016
What if SeaWorld's new commercial told the truth? "Because you know what whales hate? The ocean." #LOL
The San Diego Bowl Game Association continues to partner with SeaWorld by promoting the abusement park during its Holiday and Poinsettia bowls with advertising on its website as well as by hosting team trips to SeaWorld—despite hearing from PETA that at least 39 orcas have died on SeaWorld's watch and that the marine animals imprisoned at its parks often exhibit abnormal, aggressive, and repetitive behavior because of their confinement.
It's been more than three years since the release of the documentary Blackfish—whose "star," Tilikum, recently died after 33 years in a concrete tank—but orcas at SeaWorld are still swimming in endless circles and breaking their teeth by gnawing in frustration on the concrete corners and metal bars of their tiny tanks. And other dolphins are still being impregnated, sometimes forcibly after being drugged. Facing sinking attendance, SeaWorld finally announced that it would end its sordid orca-breeding program—which has since been made illegal in California—but this action does nothing for the 22 orcas, more than 100 other dolphins and whales, and many other animals who are suffering in the company's tanks right now.
Please use the form below to tell the San Diego Bowl Game Association that there is nothing sporting about confining orcas and other marine animals to tiny concrete tanks! Then follow up by calling 619-285-5061 and letting the association know that ethical athletes should never promote animal abuse.
