    SeaWorld Parks cutting hundreds of jobs

    ORLANDO -- SeaWorld Parks and Entertainment is planning to eliminate hundreds of jobs.
    The company confirmed the layoffs shortly after noon Thursday, calling it a "restructuring," which will allow the parks to allow them to operate more efficiently.

    Officials said the cuts affect less than 2 percent of its workforce.

    The company said it will eliminate 350 jobs around the country. A report earlier Thursday said that will include 129 jobs at SeaWorld's Orlando parks.

    The layoffs follow a poor year for SeaWorld, where attendance, sales and profits have slumped amid a soft economy, a lack of new attractions, and negative publicity stemming from the February death of killer whale trainer Dawn Brancheau.

    The company said it will alert the affected employees over the next two days.
    SeaWorld Parks and Entertainment issued the following press release Thursday:
