SeaWorld has announced it won't be taking in any new killer whales.
SeaWorld's CEO Joel Manby said in an op-ed published in the Los Angeles Times Thursday the decision also means the company will end its orca breeding program. Proposed legislation has pressured both of these changes.
This is a monumental decision for animal rights activists, including People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), who have long criticized SeaWorld's practices.
