12-year-old animal rights activist arrested in California for Seaworld orca protest May 22, 2015 14:20
The New Year’s Day Rose Parade in Pasadena, California, was interrupted by the arrest of 19 animal rights activists, including a 12-year-old girl who tried to stop a SeaWorld float depicting a family of orcas swimming free in the ocean. We love this mature and compassionate young girl!!! Her name is Rose McCoy. Calling her arrest “extremely boring,” she vowed to continue to battle for animal rights. "I'm going to fight SeaWorld as long as they keep orcas in what's equivalent to a prison," she said.
