    What are your thoughts on this? I feel that it is a little over the top...
    It's idiocy on several levels. First, slavery requires a person. Second, since the animal is the one suffering the harm (the slavery in this case), how can PETA bring forward this claim? They have no standing if we interpret the law as they do. Third, this disgusting interpretation of slavery diminishes the horrors that occurred in the not-to-distant past in this country.

    Just awful.

    I used to enjoy the dolphin and whale shows at SeaWorld but I have changed my view of all that. I'll never buy another ticket to those kinds of parks and those kinds of shows. (I'd like to see Disney discontinue the captivity of dolphins at Epcot----most of the Nemo ride there is now animated, anyway.)

    You'd think that the first time a trainer was killed by an orca the public would say, "Gosh, guess that was a bad idea. Game over." But instead they looked forward to seeing trainers go back in the water. Amazing.

    It's an issue that tends to bring out the best and worst in people, but it is worth looking into.

    Well, it is called a KILLER whale and not a underwater snuggle dog. It's pretty clear what these animals do!

    Once again, PETA proves they're cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs.

    I have said this before, but I feel that SeaWorld and Zoological parks help us humans understand and connect with animals we would normally have no contact with, and after that contact, we are more likely to protect their wild kin.

    I feel that because of SeaWorld millions upon millions of people are more aware of the need to protect and save Dolphin and Whale populations.

    PETA is a bunch of hypocritical idiots. They kill more animals then they save.

    ^while I agree the animals are much safe and I hope happy....in some ways I do get where they are coming from.

    I mean the animals are stuck in tanks...and thats why when I'm at Zoos....its kinda said yes they are safe but they don't get to roam the earth the way they were intended too......and Dolphins and whales have a very LARGE area to live in too....so in a way its sad that they wont be able to be free because of hunters

    IMO I use to support PETA but now they make me not care because its pathetic they feed and keep the animals safe from hunters i say that's great but of course PETA finds some way of trying to release these animals and i don't think they will ever win, what about Disney animal kingdom they have animals does that make them slaves to or zoos i prefer theses animals in professional company's who has taken care of animals for many years and occasionally release animals into the wild after taking care of them i see no harm at all.

    PETA might get more support from the masses, if they didn't purposely stretch the constitution all out of proportion. Their extemist acts don't help their cause at all.

    Once again PETA acting like idiots... doesn't surprise me when the group advocates people not having pets and letting all animals go free.
