Bob Barker is as devoted an animal activist as they come. Through the years he has spoken out for dogs and cats, elephants and whales, and donated countless dollars to animal protection campaigns. He has been especially vocal about the plight of captive animals.
And now, the former Price is Right star is telling it like it is by recording a PSA for PETA where he says, “If you’re thinking about a trip to SeaWorld, please reconsider.”
Barker goes on to say, “Life in cramped tanks is no prize for orcas and dolphins, who want to be free with their families in the ocean. Many have died prematurely at SeaWorld after swimming in endless circles and performing dumb tricks day in and day out.”
This isn’t the first time Barker has spoken out about the tragic living conditions for marine life at SeaWorld. When a trainer was killed at the park last year, Barker said, “The only thing that people learn from visiting a SeaWorld theme park is how miserable life is for animals held there.”
We couldn’t agree with you more, Bob Barker. Now, if only Drew Carey would let Bob do a cameo on his old stomping ground to get the message out.
