Like PETA hasn’t been doing this since… forever?
SeaWorld says it will no longer allow its employees to pose as animal rights activists to spy on its critics.
This is the first time that SeaWorld has publicly admitted that its employees did pose as animal rights activists, a charge first made by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals last summer.
SeaWorld CEO Joel Manby announced the new policy when talking with investors Thursday. He did not issue any apology for the actions of SeaWorld employees.
“This activity was undertaken in connection with efforts to maintain the safety and security of employees, customers and animals in the face of credible threats,” Manby said.
