I don't see no animals. Activists doing it? All the time.

PETA quote:

"SeaWorld's finances continue to flop as animals continue to be found dead in its tiny tanks, with one death every single month since November. If SeaWorld had business savvy or common sense, it would modernize its business with coastal sanctuaries and virtual-reality displays instead of building more roller coasters and dolphin prisons."

That statement is full of stupidity.

Modernize their business with a coastal sanctuary? That's something the California Coastal Commission would outright oppose. Furthermore, that's not an attraction worthy of making into a business.

And now they're attacking SeaWorld's decision to build more roller coasters. PETA is full of uneducated, misinformed morons.

It's a little hard for me to take the PETA proclamations at face value, given how overly dramatic they are. And I can't help but wonder: one death a month since November? Why just since November? Did "since February 2015" or "the past five years" not provide a sufficiently dramatic death count? One death a month out of an animal population of how many? What did they die from?

I'm no SeaWorld fanboy, mind you. I visited SeaWorld Ohio a few times back in the day. I made one visit to SeaWorld Orlando, had a pleasant time, dubbed Kraken "Butt-kraken" after my one ride, called it good and repaired to Amy's house to sit on the back porch and drink cocktails.
