Former The Price Is Right host, Bob Barker, has made a PSA with PETA to tell folks about the sad reality that is Sea World. The popular tourist destination is fairly criticized for their treatment of captive sea animals kept in small tanks.

I'm sorry, but I'm contractually obligated to The Price is Right to mention, whenever Bob Barker comes up, that I won a car on that show in 1980. Back when Bob still had brown (dyed) hair, and when everything in the world seemed possible. Here's video of it, showing my boyfriend in the audience!

Misleading Caption. Should be, "PETA: Don't Go to Sea World.
Do they have an ounce of credibility left? Did they ever have any?

Just like a broken clock is right twice a day, I can't fault this PSA. For PETA, it is amazingly sane and accurate. There are deep and serious flaws with the Sea World type of aquatic zoo, and it is not healthy for the inhabitants by and large. Especially the large. :P
