Whales as Plaintiffs?

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is reportedly filing a lawsuit today in federal district court in San Diego against SeaWorld, seeking a declaration that the five killer whales that perform at SeaWorld's San Diego and Orlando parks are being held as slaves in violation of the Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution. 

The five plaintiffs are anticipated to be Corky, Kasatka, Ulises, Tilikum, and Katina.
