What’s the best thing to do if you are in the lower tax bracket and bored in San Diego? Go to Sea World of course, but it looks like the park may be coming under fire for its employment (or lack there of) of whales as attractions.
A California federal court is to decide for the first time in US history whether amusement park animals are protected by the same constitutional rights as humans.
The issue arises from a lawsuit filed by rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) in a San Diego court on behalf of five orcas named Tilikum, Katina, Corky, Kasatka and Ulises. The whales perform water acrobatics at the SeaWorld amusement parks in San Diego and in Orlando, Florida.
