SeaWorld admits workers were sent into PETA
It’s a carnivorous whale eat carnivorous whale world out there. SeaWorld has admitted that they put a spy in PETA, in a move that pays homage to years and years of corporations and governments placing informants in activist groups of all kinds. PETA accused the corporation of planting a worker inside of the organization after Paul McComb, revealed to be a SeaWorld employee, attempted to “incite violence.” He has been playing the role of an animal rights activist since 2012, and has posted aggressively on social media in order to make activists look extreme.
According to the Associated Press, “SeaWorld Entertainment CEO Joel Manby vowed Thursday to end the practice, but said that it had sent its employees to protect the safety of its employees and customers.” It is unknown how exactly these actions would have protected either of the parties mentioned as there is no history of any animal rights group compromising park safety.
“SeaWorld Entertainment Inc. is hiring Freeh Group International Solutions to review oversight and controls over its security practices. The firm was founded by former FBI director, Louis Freeh,” reports AP. Freeh resigned from the FBI in 2001 amid accusations of poor leadership and oversight.
