Killer Whale Trial – PETA wants killer whales seen as slaves at trial.
The organization will file a lawsuit today in U.S. District Court in San Diego to have marine parks ruled in violation of the 13th Amendment ban on slavery over the use of killer whales.
SeaWorld called the suit as baseless.
Legal experts dismissed the chances of the suit.
However, PETA pointed out the 13th Amendment, while prohibiting slavery and involuntary servitude, does not specify that only humans can be victims.
