PETA buys stock in SeaWorld

Animal rights organization hopes to free whales, influence other stockholders

The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has a reputation of going to great lengths in the interest of animal rights, so it may have seemed surprising when the organization bought a stake in SeaWorld on April 19. But PETA has one very specific goal: Free the whales!

Last year, PETA sued SeaWorld claiming it violated the 13th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which prohibits slavery.
