In a misguided attempt to suppress the distribution of a forthcoming book that exposes the dark side of captivity, SeaWorld  fans have started a goofy online petition.
Some of those fans usually dedicate themselves to prowling the internet and trying to suppress any criticism of that amusement park, complaining to FaceBook,  or trolling their way through YouTube.  In a chorus of  “No Anti-captivity Remarks Allowed!!!”  they always seem to ‘LMFAO’ at the reality of how the orcas are treated.
But now a SeaWorld bff has started an online petition to boycott the sale of  author David Kirby’s forthcoming book, ‘Death At SeaWorld’.
The petition is just plain silly – it reads in part:

Target: All bookstores and media outlets
Sponsored by: SeaWorld fans and supporters

Note to signers: All anti-captivity comments will be removed!!! Only sign this petition if you support SeaWorld!!!
This coming march [actually the book is not due out until July], David Kirby’s book Death at SeaWorld will be released in various bookstores. This book discusses the controversy of keeping killer whales in captivity, which has revolved around the tragic death of Dawn Brancheau on February 24 2010. It also follows the story of marine biologist Naomi Rose of the U.S. Humane Society.
Kirby not only mentions people who campaign against SeaWorld, such as former trainers and eyewitnesses, but he also mentions incidents between killer whales and trainers, including Dawn’s death.

In addition, he describes the ongoing case between SeaWorld and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

This book should not be sold or promoted in any way.

If you are pro-captivity, it is much more effective to contact the publisher, St. Martin’s Press at than to sign the petition, which is just targeted to come back to the media and bookstores.
On the other hand, if you wish to find out the facts and to understand the controversy,  it is a good idea to pre-order the book , it may sell out quickly :
Death at SeaWorld: Shamu and the Dark Side of Killer Whales in Captivity.
