Remember when this happened?
That little girl had her hand clamped down on by a dolphin at SeaWorld.
So after that whole mess, PETA complained enough to get the USDA to conduct an investigation at the marine park.
And it was good they did! The park has been cited for more than one violations of the Animal Welfare act!
Here's what the investigation yielded:
The new Harlem Shake is soooo popular that even animals are doing it!!!
SeaWorld in San Antonio is already as fun as it is, but when you see a walrus, two sea lions and trainers dancing it up, then things just get that much more inneresting.
We always knew our sea friends could do tricks, but never did we think that they could cut a rug!!
Don't believe us?!? Ch-ch-check out the clip (above)!!
PETA recently filed a complaint to the U.S. Department of Agriculture against San Antonio's SeaWorld on behalf of a bottlenose dolphin that was rockin' an exposed injury on its nose.
And while the organization was in complete discontent over the hurt dolphin, they expressed that the incident is violating the Animal Welfare Act, which states facilities should be free of any objects that could possibly harm an animal.
PETA's President, Ingrid E. Newkirk said:
This dolphin is taking to the water like…well…a dolphin in water! LOLz!
An Atlantic bottlenose mother named Cascade welcomed her first calf on November 5 and this cutie is doing quite well!
The 29 year old mama and her calf are being monitored around the clock and Cascade and her babe are bonding. The gender of the little one will be determined in the coming weeks.
We're totally flipping out over SeaWorld San Diego's new dolphin!
Marion Cotillard's latest flick, Rust and Bone, has REALLY done a number on her conscious.
As reported last week, animal activists are trying to get patrons to boycott the French film for its use of captive animals and it looks like the movie's STAR is having second (or third!) thoughts) too!
Marion has vowed to never return to a SeaWorld after her experiences in the film.
The flick was shot at a Maryland SeaWorld and the actress explains her decision:
Nakai, an 11-year-old Killer Whale, was severely injured at SeaWorld.
He apparently "came into contact with a portion of the pool" and scraped his chin so badly that it exposed "both underlying tissue and bone."
That is absolutely AWFUL!
We think it's horrible enough that they keep wild orcas and force them to perform for crowds, but when one of them gets hurt, it's too much.
He's apparently doing well and on tons of antibiotics but still, it should never have happened in the first place.
Check out the GRAPHIC video (above) to hear some theories on what exactly might have happened.
