Spying – another fine mess for SeaWorld

Captivity show giant, SeaWorld has revealed yet more financial losses in 2015 and also admitted spying on those, like WDC, who oppose its practice of keeping whales and dolphins in concrete tanks for entertainment.

Financial results released for the fourth quarter, and full year of 2015, show a net loss of millions of dollars and over $9 million for the 4th financial quarter alone.

Meanwhile, SeaWorld CEO, Joel Manby has admitted its employees have been posing as animal activists to spy on its critics.

In a statement this week Manby said that SeaWorld would no longer use spies, but tried to explain the practice away by insisting that the decision to send people undercover was to maintain the safety and security of company employees, customers, and animals in the face of credible threats that the company had received.

Earlier in the week, SeaWorld announced a number of changes to its management, including the replacement of two top executives.
