The Orca Project
More evidence of SeaWorld’s negligence in orca and trainer safety… and the lack of government enforcement of the Animal Welfare Act-
 Recently released photos reveal more damaging evidence into the haphazard management of killer whale care and trainer safety at SeaWorld’s Orlando, Florida theme park.  The Orca Project has obtained photographs from the 2010 OSHA investigation into the death of veteran trainer Dawn Brancheau, which appear to show harmful chemicals stored with the food supply for killer whales at Shamu Stadium.  The placement and storage of the potentially toxic materials are not in compliance with OSHA Standards for employee safety and are clear violations of the Animal Welfare Act, placing the orca’s nutritional supply at risk for contamination: http://theorcaproject.wordpress.com/2012/02/28/seaworld-killer-whale-orca-food-hazardous-chemicals/
