Dold says that SeaWorld's killer whales "live just as long as killer whales in the wild," but that statement just doesn't match up to the facts.
Here's what SeaWorld should have said about the life spans of its orca whales.
"There's been a lot of criticism about SeaWorld these days - fair enough, since our orcas tend to die early. All but one of our females has died before age 40. Only two males have surpassed 35. In the wild, orca whale life span is about 30 to 60 years for males and 50 to 100 years for females."
