US football team cuts ties with SeaWorld

US football team, the Miami Dolphins have announced they are severing ties with SeaWorld after a two-year marketing partnership that included ticket offers to the marine theme park.

The Dolphins are the latest in a line of other big-name companies to  cut ties with SeaWorld including Southwest Airlines, Virgin America, Panama Jack, STA Travel, Taco Bell and Hyundai.

Speculation surrounds the reason for the decision by the Dolphins, but outrage over the park’s marine mammal care in the wake of the documentary “Blackfish” could be to blame.
