Re: Steve-O's Seaworld Protest
Thanks to overcrowded LA correctional facilities, he got away with a 1'500$ fine. Apparetly there were 80 firemen and a helicopter :O
Many killer whale shows across the US will be permanently closed by the end of next year, though the company already has new killer whale show ideas to rebrand them as an ethically conscious corporation that focuses on conservation and rescue. How they want to argue that forcing orcas to work in unnatural environments represents a conservation effort is beyond me.
In CA, breeding orcas that live in captivity is banned and Seaworld claims it will not capture new ones.
An Us Seaworld originally planned to build a large marine environment but regulations and financial barriers are big hurdles.
