A resident of South Carolina, who visited Sea World in Orlando, Florida, in 2013, filed a lawsuit against the park, claiming to have been subjected to false marketing about the treatment of aquatic mammals and pool conditions. The tourist claims that she would not have gone to the site if she had known the truth.

According to the lawsuit, the animals - especially the orcas – were drugged and kept in shallow pools, which could make them victims of sunburn. The plaintiff in the lawsuit states that, to disguise these wounds on the skin of orcas, the park uses black zinc oxide to paint cetaceans.

The spokesman for Sea World, Fred Jacobs says that the suit is unfounded and that the park is regularly inspected by the US government and professional associations. In addition to this suit, there is another in California, also accusing the park of lying to the public.
