SeaWorld fights killer whale rules

SeaWorld is taking on the federal government in order to get its killer whale trainers back in the water.

Trainers have been banned from the pools ever since a veteran trainer was killed by the whale named Tilikum back in 2010.

The government say the rules are needed to keep trainers safe, but SeaWorld says the ban is hurting business.
