Animal Plant Health Inspection Services: Reinspect Orca Lolita's Enclosure at Miami Seaquarium

According to the Animal Welfare Act and APHIS, the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, the primary enclosure for a whale Lolita's size must be a minimum of 48 feet wide in either direction with a straight line of travel across the middle. Lolita's tank is a mere 35 feet from the front wall to the slide out barrier. At its deepest point in the center the tank is only 20 feet deep. This is important because this animal has the legal right to all of the CFR's that the Miami Seaquarium is in violation of.

      CAPTIVITY IS TORTURE IN ITS WORST FORM

      Orcas shouldn't be in captivity at all - there's NO education staring at animals that are drugged in order to keep them calm, forced to play silly ball games for imbecilic but paying visitors, getting stressed and aggressive because of their living conditions and suffering their whole (mostly short) life long just to increase profit for ignorant humans. Everyone who supports these crimes -whether as employees, visitors or operators - should be ashamed of his own lack of intellect and compassion!

      Only this sluggish human mass makes the exploitation of these wonderful creatures possible.

      Lolita's successor is already suffering in the service of profit at Loro Parque in Tenerife - her name is Morgan and her only function is to produce new genetic material for all these "animal lovers" such as Sea World, Loro Parque, and other "education centers"-visitors.
