Wrong.Disney does not breed its dolphins, so it would not be blacklisted under TripAdvisor's guidelines.
That's what the official press release says, but there's a caveat at the bottom of the page that exempts places like Disney.Wrong.
TripAdvisor claims to be stopping sales to all parks that "display, breed, or transport cetaceans in captivity."
So any park that does any of the above three should be barred from TripAdvisor sales.
Yeah so basically, they can't breed dolphins or acquire new dolphins. So if Disney agreed to this, they'd basically be agreeing to end the dolphins at Epcot.That's what the official press release says, but there's a caveat at the bottom of the page that exempts places like Disney.
TripAdvisor and its Viator brand will no longer sell tickets to, or directly generate revenue from, attractions or experiences where captive cetaceans are placed on public display, with the exception of:
Any accredited facility that has made an official and public commitment to implement all of the following practices:
- Cease and prevent the breeding of cetaceans in its care
- Cease the importation of captive cetaceans from other facilities for public display
- Cease the capture and importation of wild cetaceans for public display
Disney hasn't publicly commented on this yet, so it's possible that they may opt to be blacklisted. But that's pretty unlikely.
How does this relate to Blackfish?Remember James Cromwell? He got arrested:
Actor James Cromwell was charged with disorderly conduct after police said he disrupted a meeting of the Texas A&M University System Board of Regents.www.usatoday.com
Seems like people have finally had enough of PETA and their "activists." Good riddance.
