People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals
A Meatpacking District restaurant called off a planned party to be hosted by SeaWorld Tuesday, after an animal rights group threatened to protest over the live penguins that were set to be part of it.
PETA charges that SeaWorld’s “A Sea Of Surprises” float with penguins, kelp and whales is part of its crisis management after the documentary “Blackfish” gave the theme park a black eye.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie had no mercy for a spider that crawled up onto his desk as he spoke to a group of children late last week.
PETA claims the birds are raised in captivity and when they are taken states away and let loose to fly home, many fall prey to predators, starve or die in poor weather.
