OSHA Fines SeaWorld

OSHA finds SeaWorld at fault for February death of trainer.

The US Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) found SeaWorld at fault for the death of an orca trainer. In February this year, 40-year-old trainer Dawn Brancheau was killed by a killer whale at the Orlando SeaWorld park. OSHA found three citations against the marine park for safety violations, including putting employees in direct harm with the animals. It concluded by giving SeaWorld the maximum penalty: a $75,000 fine. PETA has long petitioned for the end of confinement of marine wildlife and the use of the animals for entertainment.
