Killer whales "slaves", protected under the 13th amendment?

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) claimed that five killer whales at the San Diego SeaWorld are treated like slaves because they are forced to live in tanks and perform daily.

But a federal judge yesterday dismissed the lawsuit saying the 13th amendment - which outlaws slavery and involuntary servitude - applies only to humans.

Who knew whales weren't protected by the Constitution?

Sea World's attorney Theodore Shaw called the lawsuit a waste of the court's time and resources.
