A shocking new report confirms many activists' worst suspicions: animal abuse and cruelty have run rampant at the Miami Seaquarium. According to the report, many of the facility's dolphins were chronically underfed and deprived of food in an effort to ensure they would perform for guests. The situation was so dire that nine dolphins' daily food rations were cut by a whopping 60%, and one dolphin lost over 100 pounds. There is absolutely no reason this facility should remain open for even one more day!
Sign now to demand the USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service shut down this facility for good!
Dolphins already suffer tremendously in captivity. The lively sea mammals are extremely intelligent, social creatures that develop complex relationships with one another. A recent study of bottlenose dolphins even found that these amazing creatures give themselves names, which other dolphins then refer to them by. These animals clearly should not even be in tanks to begin with, and the fact that they were forced to endure additional cruelty is terrifying.
The Miami Seaquarium has proven that it does not care about animals, and this facility must be shut down for good with as many animals being sent to sanctuaries as possible. Sign the petition now to tell the USDA APHIS: protect dolphins! Shut down the Miami Seaquarium!
