SeaWorld Entertainment has dropped an appeal of citations it received after the drowning of a trainer who was pulled under by a killer whale, ending any chance of trainers ever again swimming with orcas during shows, according to NBC Miami.
The marine park company said in a Securities and Exchange Commission filing last week that it wasn't going to pursue the appeal of a court's decision to uphold the citations.
Last April, the federal appeals court in Washington said SeaWorld's challenge to the finding was unpersuasive, and that the Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission was correct when it found that the SeaWorld park in Orlando had violated a federal workplace safety law, NBC Miami reports.
