Tommy Lee Fires Back At SeaWorld

Earlier this week we told you about a letter that Tommy Lee sent to SeaWorld on behalf of PETA that addressed some concerns the rocker had over the method in which whale sperm samples were collected… To be blunt, I’m talking about whale masturbation here, folks.

According to Lee’s initial letter, he claimed that Tilikum, the killer whale involved in the deaths of three people this year, including his trainer, has been confined to a tank barely larger than its own body and is also being treated as a sperm bank for the park.

In the letter, Lee stated, “We understand that you refuse to release this frustrated whale because he is your chief sperm bank, and we know from SeaWorld’s own director of safety (as well as videos on the web) that the way you get his sperm is by having someone get into the pool and masturbate him with a cow’s vagina filled with hot water.”


But SeaWorld’s VP of Communications, Fred Jacobs, quickly replied by saying, “The process of collecting semen for this process doesn’t differ in any meaningful way from the techniques employed in managing livestock or other species from zoological display.” He then argued that, “Lee also contends that semen is collected from Tilikum using a ‘cow’s vagina filled with hot water.’ This is beyond ludicrous. Whatever his views on SeaWorld, Mr. Lee would be wise to spend more time checking his facts.”

So, the plot thickens now as Lee has penned a new letter, this time directed to Terry Prather, the President of SeaWorld. We were given a copy of this letter by a PETA rep, and you can see it in full after the jump below.
