SeaWorld to challenge federal ban

SeaWorld to challenge federal ban

Posted: Updated:

On Tuesday Seaworld officials will challenge the federal government's ban on allowing trainers to be in the water with killer whales.

The ban was put in place after trainer Dawn Brancheau was drowned by a killer whale in 2010.

Seaworld says the feds went too far in their ban and that human contact is important to the care of whales.

SeaWorld claims the restriction would be like banning tackling from the NFL.
