Miami – Monday is a solemn day that marks 52 years since Lolita was kidnapped from her household and ocean dwelling and dumped into the world’s smallest orca tank on the Miami Seaquarium, so members of PETA—together with one dressed as an orca and confined to a wading pool that mimics the pathetic existence Lolita endures—will protest outdoors the Seaquarium on Saturday to push for her launch to a seaside sanctuary. Earlier this 12 months, a whistleblower leaked the truth that Lolita was deathly sick, and now PETA factors out that she is going to possible not survive one other sickness as she languishes in that abysmally small tank.
When: Saturday, August 6, 12 midday
The place: Miami Seaquarium, 4400 Rickenbacker Cswy., Key Biscayne
“Lolita can’t final for much longer on the earth’s smallest orca tank, the place her life is lowered to that of a tub toy,” says PETA Government Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA is demanding that the Miami Seaquarium cease Lolita’s struggling on this lifetime of privation and ship her to a sanctuary the place she may really feel the ocean currents and specific pure habits once more, earlier than it’s too late.”
PETA—whose motto reads, partially, that “animals are usually not ours to make use of for leisure”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview.
