SeaWorld just got busted by a US government agency for violating the Animal Welfare Act — and we may have a rare chance to end its animal cruelty for good.
SeaWorld imprisons orca whales in tiny, cage-like tanks — and the USDA citation reveals conditions at the park are dangerous to the animals’ health. SeaWorld is still defending its barbaric practices, but huge pressure is building on the company.
In a surprise move, a Californian assemblyman has just introduced a law to make it illegal to keep orcas in captivity. This could change everything — but SeaWorld is already mounting a vicious campaign to defeat this assemblyman’s brave move. We need to tell the State of California that the public won’t accept SeaWorld’s imprisonment of orcas any longer.
California: Enact the Orca Welfare and Safety Act to stop SeaWorld’s imprisonment and torture of whales now.More info here and here. And a trailer for the documentary on the cruelty of Seaworld, Blackfish, here. Similarly there’s a documentary called The Cove where a man works with dolphins and explains how captivity harms them, as well. TRIGGER WARNING FOR ANIMAL VIOLENCE AND DEATH IN BOTH DOCUMENTARIES.You guys. You guys this is important. You don’t even need an account to sign the petition you just need to give your name an email address and a zipcode/areacode/whatever for whatever country you reside in. Go do it gogogogogo. Petition is HERE. They are so close to reaching their goal of 1,000,000 signatures.
