PETA sues SeaWorld to end killer whale slavery

1

A US judge is considering a complaint by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) against SeaWorld, naming five killer whales as plaintiffs in a lawsuit which argues they deserve the same constitutional protection from slavery as humans. They don’t consider it likely that the whales will win their freedom, but campaigners said they were pleased the case even made it to a courtroom. Named whales are Tilikum and Katina at SeaWorld Orlando, and Kasatka, Corky and Ulises at SeaWorld San Diego. Read BBC
