Also, anyone making a list that bases their "review" on other sources rather than doing the work themselves shouldn't even write said story. Let alone a food site. Alas, these days anyone with a web site can write a "news story". The worse part is how many take what they read on the internet as solid truth. There's lots of shite out there to the uneducated.

The drama doesn't end with Tilikum's death, it seems:

"As legally required, SeaWorld notified the federal government how its infamous killer whale Tilikum died: of bacterial pneumonia.

"Other details about his health and death, such as whether he had injuries, remain unknown. Animal welfare groups have been pushing for a release of Tilkum’s full necropsy.

...

"But details about deaths of whales and dolphins in captivity have been shielded from the public since 1994, when Congress amended the Marine Mammal Protection Act after industry lobbying.

...

"SeaWorld Entertainment vice president of science and research Judy St. Leger argues his necropsy doesn’t need to be public because the company is already using Tilikum’s tissues in more than a dozen studies that will be published when complete. The research ranges from a metabolic study on how many calories orcas need to high school science fair work on whale genetics, St. Leger said.

“'The value isn’t in the necropsy,' St. Leger said."

They don't want anyone to know that he was an illegal alien!

It's time to build a wall around SeaWorld and have Disney pay for it.

PETA won't stop:

http://www.orlandosentinel.com/business/...story.html

"In December, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals submitted a resolution calling for the retirement of SeaWorld’s orcas to ocean pens.

"PETA owns SeaWorld shares. Investors that own enough stock in a public company can place such resolutions on its proxy statement. Investors vote on them at the annual shareholder meetings.

...

"SeaWorld has written to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission asking whether the staff agrees the proposal can be excluded.

"In its letter, SeaWorld argues that PETA’s proposal is vague. Also, the company says, “it is well-known to the proponent that no `seaside sanctuaries’ currently exist.”

"PETA has tried several times to get SeaWorld investors to vote on the issue. The group had to withdraw one resolution after SeaWorld said its shares didn't meet the minimum value needed. PETA said the value fell beneath the minimum required because of SeaWorld's stock decline. PETA’s original resolution was blocked in 2014 because federal rules require shareholders to have held stock for at least a year before submitting resolutions. SeaWorld had been a publicly traded company for less than a year, so no stockholder could meet that threshold."


http://www.latimes.com/business/la-fi-04...story.html

"SeaWorld may have announced last month that it is phasing out captive orcas for public display, but the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals wants the theme park to go even further and send its marine animals to "
'seaside sanctuaries.'

...

"But SeaWorld officials said in a statement that the discussion is a non-starter. Given the ages of the animals, the length of time they've spent with humans and the relationships they've formed with other whales, SeaWorld said transporting the orcas to sea pens would do more harm than good."

Didn't Joel Manby himself make a remark recently about the possibility of SeaWorld considering these enclosures as an alternative? If he said anything like that, I wonder if the guy really has a more secret (better) plan.

I do believe the tide may turn, but having a spokesperson like himself making those statements might prevent any chances of significant changes in the future.
