US Senator seeks to outlaw captive whale and dolphin shows

Democrat US state Senator, Kevin Ranker has introduced legislation to try to stop Sea World type shows in Washington.

Senator Ranker wants to make it a crime for a zoo or aquarium in Washington to hold a wild-caught or captive-bred whale, dolphin or porpoise for purposes of entertainment or performance.

“They’re used to swimming hundreds and hundreds and thousands of miles and we’re putting them in tanks the size of the Washington state Senate floor. It’s disgusting,” he said.

The proposal would only make an exception for zoos and aquariums in certain circumstances, for example as a temporary measure for rehabilitation.
