We work tirelessly day-in and day-out, to care for these animals
, and that's all our team is focused on right now. (qtd. in Schindler)
Lives full of entertaining people
A Daily News article states how people violate the rules:
. . . visitors are seen feeding animals and sometimes
them when the
rules strictly prohibited
them from doing so. ( "Forever Wild")

1999: a homeless man sneaked into the whale tank after hours
2010: Tilikum's trainer Dawn Brancheau

It's time for SeaWorld to let marine mammals live

in peace with their families in the world's oceans
where they belong
. Depriving these intelligent animals of
