Killer Whales Slavery

  FILE - In this Thursday, Nov. 30, 2006 file photo, killer whale Kasatka leaps out of the water while an unidentified trainer gives signals during SeaWorld' Shamu show in San Diego. In an unprecedented lawsuit, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is accusing the SeaWorld marine parks of keeping five of its star-performer killer whales in conditions that violate the Constitution's ban on slavery. The suit, which PETA says it will file Wednesday, Oct. 26, 2011 in U.S. District Court in San Diego, hinges on the fact that the 13th Amendment, while prohibiting slavery and involuntary servitude, does not specify that only humans can be victims.
