Not only children´s eyes glow while watching the big Thanksgiving parades. Huge floats designed in all colors, forms and shapes make this event a fabulous celebration for eyes, ears and souls. One float should not be there, though: a promotional float in the shape of a whale.
“SeaWorld’s stock has tanked. Corporations such as Virgin America, STA Travel, Taco Bell, and Southwest Airlines have severed their ties to the company, and shareholders have slapped it with a lawsuit. Yet Macy’s is still planning to promote the cruel company in its Thanksgiving Day Parade, even though SeaWorld profits from forcing highly intelligent orcas to perform silly circus tricks in concrete tanks that are the human equivalent of bathtubs.
The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is supposed to be part of a day that celebrates all there is to be thankful for, but orcas have nothing to be thankful for at SeaWorld parks, where they live in tiny chlorinated pools and gnaw at the gate bars out of extreme boredom and frustration and are denied everything that is natural and important to them.
Send a polite message to the CEO of Macy’s and its parade producer so that they know how important it is to the public to end marine animal suffering. Please forward this message to friends, family members, and coworkers and share the alert on social media.”
