Court to decide if SeaWorld whales are illegal 'slaves'
[link to www.breitbart.com]

[snip]

A California federal court is to decide for the first time in US history whether amusement park animals are protected by the same constitutional rights as humans.
The issue arises from a lawsuit filed by rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) in a San Diego court on behalf of five orcas named Tilikum, Katina, Corky, Kasatka and Ulises.

The whales perform water acrobatics at the SeaWorld amusement parks in San Diego and in Orlando, Florida.

PETA argues that continuing the whales' "employment" at SeaWorld violates the 13th Amendment to the US Constitution, which prohibits slavery.

District Judge Jeffrey Miller heard arguments in the complaint Monday and reviewed the response from SeaWorld, which asked that the lawsuit be dismissed. His ruling is expected to come later.

The suit, filed in October 2011, asked that the court declare that the orcas are "held in slavery and/or involuntary servitude by defendants in violation of the Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution."

"It's a new frontier in civil rights," said Jeff Kerr, PETA general counsel, who described the hearing as a "historic day."

Re: Court to decide if SeaWorld whales are illegal 'slaves'
to use the Constitution for this purpose is stepping over the line by PETA, imho, and i'm a vegetarian. This is not what the Constitution was made for. I don't think whales should be removed from their habitats for the amusement of people, but at the same time those whales aren't protected by the U.S. Constitution, no way...

it is great that it is going before the courts to discuss the idea of what is slavery, and to whom the rights should apply. you cannot argue that dolphins and whales are not highly conscious creatures.
