A video went viral of a seemingly injured and bleeding dolphin at SeaWorld Orlando who was attacked by other dolphins. The video, posted on TikTok by user @the.man.child shows an injured dolphin lying on the side of their tank where they are forced to perform in shows.
A dolphin pod at SeaWorld Orlando today repeatedly attacked one of the dolphins in the pod, while the trainers were trying to do the show, causing the dolphin to start bleeding. 😬😥😥 #dolphin #seaworld #seaworldorlando #attack #violent #nature #fyp #wild #orlando #Florida
The user claims that the dolphin was attacked by other dolphins, and the trainers can be heard calling off the show in the audio of the clip.
“A dolphin pod at SeaWorld Orlando today repeatedly attacked one of the dolphins in the pod, while the trainers were trying to do the show, causing the dolphin to start bleeding,” the user captioned the video.
PETA has used this video to call once again for the end of these cruel and exploitative shows.
“It never should have happened again, and how many more times must the dysfunction, cruelty, and profound animal suffering at SeaWorld be exposed?” PETA wrote. “Left alone in their ocean homes, dolphins maintain dynamic relationships with large social networks, choose their own mates, and swim freely, but SeaWorld crams approximately 140 of these highly intelligent marine mammals into just seven small tanks and then expresses surprise when they lash out, again and again.”
PETA asked once again that the dolphins be removed from the park and placed in seaside sanctuaries.
