Blake has actively commented on the article providing some clarification on his thoughts and now Marineland's paid public relations person John Beattie has also chimed in by posting a comment via his Facebook account. Responding to Blake, John Beattie had this to say:
"Hey Tom. You are being targeted by people who actually want to not only close all zoos and aquaria, but also close all farms. Vegetarianism is perhaps a healthy choice for some people. But choice means nothing for these people. They equate owning an animal to slavery. Every dog and cat and canary owner clearly disagree with them."
UPDATE: John Beattie has become a full on social media savant commenting on new articles.
