Disguised as whales, a number of young girls tried to block visitors' cars from approaching Miami Seaquarium where the orca Lolita completed Tuesday her 47th year in captivity.
The little girls and teens were among some 20 demonstrators organized by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), an environmentalist group that keeps up a legal battle to win freedom for the orca, also known as a killer whale.
