Christian Serratos Outraged at Macy's SeaWorld Float

Christian Serratos, best known for her portrayal of Angela Weber in the Twilight movies, is an outspoken proponent of vegetarianism due to her love of animals.

Upon learning that a SeaWorld float featuring Shamu will be presented in this year’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, Serratos voiced her opposition on Twitter:

“Had no idea @Macys supported @SeaWorld makes me think twice about
shopping there 🙁

ORCAS NEED U! Please ask @Macys to CANCEL @SeaWorld’s float in the
Thanksgiving Day Parade!”

The float, called “A Sea of Surprises,” will lead into SeaWorld’s 50-year celebration.

PETA has created a petition to urge SeaWorld’s CEO and the parade producer to cancel the float.

The animal rights organization argues that orcas are used to swimming up to 100 miles a day in the ocean. Captive orcas, however, are confined to small tanks where their sonar constantly bounces off the walls and drives them insane. Food is often withheld from the animals as a common training method to force them to perform tricks.

Due to intense boredom and aggression caused by their captivity, orcas gnaw on the metal gates and concrete corners of the tanks, damaging their teeth.

SeaWorld’s corporate incident log contains more than 100 reported incidents of orca aggression at its parks. In 2010, Tilikum violently killed trainer Dawn Brancheau – the third person he has killed to date. As a result of this incident, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) assessed the maximum fine against SeaWorld for willfully violating federal law.

Sign the petition to keep SeaWorld out of the iconic Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
