Bob Barker Demands Miami Seaquarium Release Captive Orca! (Video)

Bob Barker, the legendary host of The Price Is Right, has called on the Miami Seaquarium to release Lolita, the famous killer whale kept in captivity there, according to the Miami New Times.

For years, animal rights activists have demanded that the orca, who measures 20 feet and weighs 7,000 pounds, be freed from her miniscule enclosure and sent back to her natural habitat in the Pacific Northwest.

Now Barker has added his voice to the chorus of protestors by stating in a new PETA ad, “I’m calling on the Miami Seaquarium to release the orca Lolita to a seaside sanctuary, where she would be able to feel the ocean currents.”

The controversy surrounding the conditions that Lolita is kept in arise from the fact that her tank is the smallest in the world for a killer whale. The pool is only four times longer than her body and just 20 feet deep, inhumane conditions for a mammal that would swim 75 miles a day in the ocean.
