Activists from the Vegan Strike Group recently disrupted a dolphin show at the Loro Parque in Tenerife, Spain.
Loro Parque had been on the group’s “wish list for a long time,” according to a post on the organization’s Facebook page.
The Facebook post said the group “took this action for both the dolphins and for the orcas as they are being exploited in this horrible park. The park has been receiving negative media attention for years, because of the exploitation of dolphins, orcas and sea lions for entertainment purposes. People are becoming more and more aware of the cruelty behind this form of entertainment. The travel agency Thomas Cook recently decided to stop selling entry tickets for Loro Parque and Sea World because of the animal abuse.”
While the activists were escorted by security out of the demonstration pool and the park, the Spanish National Police chose not to prosecute them, according to the post.
The disruption “was the fourteenth time we took action for the dolphins and the sea lions since the foundation of the Vegan Strike Group,” the organization said on its Facebook page.
