SeaWorld IP address tied to lopsided 'Blackfish' poll numbers

A recent online poll conducted by the Orlando Business Journal asked if the documentary "BlackFish", which aired on CNN, changed your opinion of SeaWorld.

Did SeaWorld stuff ballots for 'Blackfish' poll?

More than 90 percent of respondents said no, which seemed a bit 'fishy' to the paper. So they looked into it and found that more than half of the votes came from a SeaWorld IP address.

CNN's Martin Savidge has the latest.

PETA to protest SeaWorld at Rose Parade

The backlash against SeaWorld continues on the heels of the documentary film "Blackfish." PETA is now planning a protest during Wednesday's Rose Parade in Pasadena.

The design for SeaWorld's float in the parade will feature a family of killer whales swimming freely in the ocean, a far cry from the way "Blackfish" portrays the park's treatment of killer whales in captivity.
