Whales sue SeaWorld!

Courts are dealing with a whale of an issue–whether animals have constitutional protection under the 13th Amendment!  The organization People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) recently filed a lawsuit against SeaWorld, naming five whales held at SeaWorld Orlando and SeaWorld San Diego as the plaintiffs.  CNN and the BBC report the lawsuit claims a violation of the five whales’ 13th Amendment protections. You can see a copy of the complaint by going to the PETA’s Official blog under the post for October 11, 2011 (click the hyperlink “filing a lawsuit” for a PDF of the complaint).
