California bill would ban orca shows, captive breeding

General March 8, 2014

By Dana Feldman SANTA MONICA, California (Reuters) – A California lawmaker introduced a bill on Friday to ban live performances and captive breeding of killer whales in the state, a measure that would force the SeaWorld San Diego marine theme park to end is popular “Shamu” shows. The measure was introduced by state Assemblyman Richard Bloom, who told a news conference his interest in the issue was sparked by last year’s documentary “Blackfish,” dealing with the treatment of killer whales at SeaWorld parks. The film, which SeaWorld has criticized as a misleading, inaccurate piece of animal rights propaganda, explores circumstances leading to the 2010 death of a top SeaWorld trainer, Dawn Brancheau, who was pulled underwater and drowned by an orca she had worked and performed with in Florida.
