SeaWorld set to appeal OSHA citations

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Attorneys for SeaWorld will argue to overturn citations issued by OSHA following a trainer's death in 2010.

Since then, trainers have been barred from in-water interaction with Orcas. SeaWorld contends that the close contact is essential to its business.

Experts and animal rights activists are expected to sit in on Tuesday's hearing.

If the park loses the appeal, the final option would be to petition the U.S. Supreme Court.
