SeaWorld is another good potential case!

The debate about the benefits and drawbacks of housing captive animals has gone on for decades.  First zoos were the culprit, keeping wild animals conditions that were untenable.  Now SeaWorld and their killer whales.  Though the debate was ongoing before the tragic event of the death of a trainer, it has gotten real legs now and attendance at the parks have dropped.  A documentary “Blackfish” has been run by CNN (frequently) reporting on the negative aspects of captivity.   Next, John Stossel will be hosting a program discussing what is wrong with the documentary and airing both sides of the controversy. What is SeaWorld supposed to do? What would be your counsel & why?
