Orange Bowl Exploits Dolphins for a Football Game

The Capital One Orange Bowl is an annual college football game in Miami that continues to promote the Miami Seaquarium by having a dolphin "choose" the game's winner. If given the chance, dolphins would choose freedom, and when it comes to the Miami Seaquarium, there are only losers.

For more than 46 years, the park has confined an orca name Lolita—aka "the World's Loneliest Orca"—to what is currently the smallest and oldest orca tank in the U.S. She was abducted from her family in the wild when she was about 4 years old and hasn't seen another orca since 1980, when her tankmate, Hugo, repeatedly rammed his head into the tank wall until he died.

The dolphins at the abusement park—including Flipper, who's used in Orange Bowl promotions—have been seen repeatedly banging their faces on the bottom of their tank, and many have open wounds on their lower jaws and severe scarring.

Clearly, they don't like living in barren tanks.

SeaWorld's sales continue to sink, and Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus was forced to close after 146 years of animal abuse.

Clearly, people don't like seeing animals confined and exploited anymore.

The Orange Bowl needs to get with the times and end all affiliations with the abusive sea circus that goes by the name of the Miami Seaquarium.

Tell the Orange Bowl to stop supporting the exploitation of animals and ditch the Miami Seaquarium!
