According to an investor's webcast that took place on Monday afternoon, SeaWorld is phasing out their orca shows at their San Diego location after guests responded strongly over the past several years.

An unnamed park representative, speaking on the webcast for investors, said of the decision to cut back on the park's killer whale shows:

"The main point is we are listening to our guests. We are evolving as a company, we are always changing."

While the park can say they are listening to their guests, this news may actually be in direct response to recent changes of the law in California.

Congressman Adam Schiff recently announced that he's going to introduce

We don't think most people are this cool with being locked up.

Steve-O captured everyone's attention in August when he climbed on top of a construction crane with a giant, inflatable whale.

On Wednesday, the Jackass star shared that he had been sentenced to 30 days in prison for the stunt he pulled, which was all in the name of protesting SeaWorld's alleged animal abuse.

The 41-year-old took to Instagram after getting slapped with jail time. But instead of ranting and raving about being incarcerated, he actually admitted he was pretty cool with it, writing:

"Considering I've become a clean and sober, dog-rescuing vegan, I must say I'm ready to go to jail– not just because it will bring so much attention to the plight of orcas in captivity, but because it's nice to let people know I haven't lost my edge. What can I say, I'm a jackass."

We can't really say we're surprised he's going to be behind bars. He was charged with five different misdemeanors because police mistook his grand gesture for a suicidal man prepared to jump.

But, Steve-O actually seems happy that he's been sentenced, since he feels it gives his demonstration more meaning:

Steve-O is being charged for climbing to the top of a construction crane!

Would you honestly expect anything less than over-the-top from Steve-O?

The Jackass star was arrested earlier this month after he caused quite the commotion in Hollywood! Police responded to what they thought was a suicidal jumper who had climbed to the top of a construction crane in LA.

But when they arrived, it turns out it was actually the comedian, putting on quite the protest against SeaWorld.

Donning a Blackfish t-shirt — as an obvious jab at the marine life attraction — Steve-O made his way to the crane's tippy top, all while carrying a giant inflatable whale!

Now he's facing not one, not two, but FIVE misdemeanor charges. Yikes!

SeaWorld Loses Appeal In Court! Turns Out It's Dangerous To Work With Deadly Killer Whales!

| Filed under: Legal MattersAnimal RightsSea CreaturesWhalesSea World

SeaWorld lost an appeal case, basically meaning that they are in fact at fault for a killer whale killing a trainer!

SeaWorld hasn't been shown in the best light these days…

Maybe it's because of the horrible way they keep majestic sea creatures trapped.

Thankfully, a proposed bill in California might make it illegal for SeaWorld to have orcas!

Even a former SeaWorld trainer said they barely care about

Anyone who says movies don't have an impact in real life can bite their tongue!

At least this time around!

Because of the enlightening documentary Blackfish, a bill has been proposed in California that would effectively force SeaWorld to shut its killer whales show down!

Not only that, but it would also make SeaWorld provide the majestic animals with far larger sea pens! Hallelujah!

The bill would also make it illegal for
