SeaWorld spying on pro-animal activists, emulating NSA and CIA

This video from the USA says about itself:

PETA: SeaWorld Employee Infiltrated Animal Rights Group, Called for Grabbing “Pitchforks & Torches”

15 July 2015

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has accused the popular animal theme park SeaWorld of infiltrating its organization by sending an employee on an undercover mission posing as an animal rights activist. According to PETA, the SeaWorld employee took part in numerous PETA protests against SeaWorld, including one at the 2014 Rose Parade in Pasadena when he was arrested along with other activists.

One photo posted on Twitter showed him inside a police van along with other arrested activists. PETA activists knew the man as Thomas Jones, but his real name was Paul McComb. Unlike the other activists arrested that day, he was released without charge. His name never appeared on an arrest sheet. According to PETA, McComb also repeatedly used social media in an effort to incite other activists, stating that it’s time to “grab pitchforks and torches” and time to burn SeaWorld to the ground. We speak to Matthew Strugar, director of litigation for the PETA Foundation; PETA volunteer Hal Weiss; and Will Potter, investigative reporter and author of “Green is the New Red: An Insider’s Account of a Social Movement Under Siege.”

And now, months later …

Like in the USA there are not already far more than enough privacy violations by the NSA, CIA, FBI, etc. etc. …

Translated from Dutch NOS TV:

SeaWorld spied on animal organizations

Today, 19:08

An employee of the US American amusement park SeaWorld has infiltrated animal welfare organizations. The company has admitted the espionage and has promised to stop it immediately. The employee who spied had been suspended before, but is said to be still employed by SeaWorld.


One of the organizations where the employee infiltrated is PETA. They say the man attempted to incite PETA activists to commit violence. PETA thinks he should be sacked.

    SEAWORLD in Miami said yesterday that it will stop breeding killer whales and phase out theatrical shows involving trained orcas.

    The decision comes after years of campaigning by animal rights activists who hold that keeping such large sea creatures — males can reach 30 feet in length and weigh nearly seven tons — in captivity is cruel and dangerous.

    A film released in 2013, Blackfish, highlighted the case of killer-whale trainer Dawn Brancheau, who was dragged underwater and killed in 2010 by one of Seaworld’s whales.

    “Seaworld’s commitment to end breeding of orcas is a long-held goal of many animal advocacy organisations and we commend the company for making this game-changing commitment,” Humane Society president and chief executive Wayne Pacelle said.

    Seaworld said its current whales would be “the last generation of orcas in our care” and that it would replace whale shows with “new, inspiring natural orca encounters.”
