Truth be told…for a price

Seems SeaWorld didn’t get the joke. That – or the truth hit too close to home. Let’s face it: SeaWorld, with all its phony glitz and glamour, just doesn’t impress inquiring minds. At the end of the day, with a cost of over $60.00 to attend one of SeaWorld’s parks, one is left with little entertainment value. And there is NOTHING entertaining about watching captive dolphins – some of the most sentient beings on the planet – performing for their very survival.

Stephen Gilchrist Glover, a.k.a. Steve-O of “Jackass” fame, took matters into his own hands, literally, and was hit with a $239.00 traffic citation for a prank which was worth its weight in gold, or in this case, water.

After admitting to the prank three months ago, Steve-O posted on Instagram, writing: “The California Highway Patrol has requested that the District Attorney file charges against me for helping out this sign. Bring on the publicity, because #SeaWorldSucks #yeahdude #freesteveo.”

Watch why this funny man pulled the prank on a San Diego interstate. Hint: it’s all about SHAMU, or as we like to say, “Shame on U, SeaWorld!” And Steve-O, if you need help paying the fine…call us.

About Cara Sands

It might be true that we don't recall many moments from our early years. However, Cara's first memory of a dolphin had her begging her parents to ask the trainer to let the dolphin go! The problem with captivity was evident to her, even as a 4 year-old child.

A writer by trade, Cara has researched, investigated and documented dolphins suffering in captivity. From documenting dolphins incarcerated in buildings, cut-off from fresh air, sunlight and normal socialization to researching cases of animals imprisoned in solitary confinement, Cara is a dedicated dolphin welfare advocate.

It is her belief that education equals empowerment. The more information shared, the better our choices and knowledge of how to act as a positive and respectful voice for dolphins across the world.

Cara is based out of Canada and makes time whenever possible to observe dolphins in their natural environments. She is writing her first fiction novel but knowing her, the marine world will play a prominent role in her book!

"The use of animals for entertainment is nothing more than an abuse of dominance. Some of the most sentient species on the planet have been exploited to incomprehensible levels, all due to their inherent benevolence. Ironic, considering that we turn to the abused themselves for displays of humanity."
