Sea World Rescues 11th Manatee This Year


PETA calls themselves activists. But when you try to win people to your cause by flying a plane over a park telling all who are in the park that they imprison animals, you go from being an activist to a fanatic(read that story here). When you stop trying to gain sympathy and instead instill a violent message, then I’m sorry you no longer deserve to call yourself an activist anymore than the right wing wackos who protest outside of the funerals of Service Men and Women deserve to call themselves Christians. Sorry for the rant, but I read the story about PETA then this story, and you really have to wonder if PETA will ever get their heads out of their asses and realize that they and Sea World are really on the same side…albeit in different spectrums but the same side none the less.

SeaWorld Rescues 11th Manatee This Year

Orlando, Fla. (March 9, 2010) — SeaWorld Orlando’s Animal Rescue Team rescues a young female manatee today from a canal near Satellite Beach, Fla. This was the park’s 11th cold-stress manatee rescue this year – an unusually high number due to Florida’s unseasonably cold and extended winter. The approximately five-foot-long sea cow remains in guarded condition at SeaWorld’s Manatee Rehabilitation Center, where she is be treated by park veterinarians and animal care specialists in hopes of releasing her back to nature.

SeaWorld is the global leader in the rescue and rehabilitation of manatees. The park’s Animal Rescue & Rehabilitation Team is on call 365 days a year, 24 hours a day. SeaWorld has released seven manatees this year.
