Kim Kardashian’s “thank you” tweet to Vallarta Adventures causes controversy with PETA

A recent tweet by Kim Kardashian has placed her at odds with animal rights activists once again, and this time puts Puerto Vallarta’s largest tour operator, Vallarta Adventures, in the line of fire and opens the debate of animal captivity.

Vallarta Adventures has been featured on TV programs and channels that include E! Entertainment, Travel Channel, Discovery Channel, ESPN, the BBC, Good Morning Arizona, TV Azteca, and Televisa, as well as in respected publications including Hello Magazine, Architectural Digest, Outside Magazine, Travel Age West, TTG Leisure Travel News, Reforma Newspaper, the Los Angeles Times, and the New York Times.

Thanking the trainers at Vallarta Adventures in Puerto Vallarta, the reality TV queen wrote: ‘Double dolphin ride with @kristennoelgipson. Thank you Vallarta Adventures for teaching us so much!’

Bosses at PETA have now slammed the star for supporting dolphin ride excursions, insisting the animals can be left stressed and at risk of illness through constant close interaction with humans.

Speaking to Radar, the group’s Senior Vice President Lisa Lange said: ‘Kim is free to leave the pool, but for the dolphins, it’s a lifetime sentence.

‘Touch tanks and ‘swim-with’ programs allow the public to pet, kiss, or even ‘ride’ dolphins. Such programs invade the animals’ already diminished worlds and are intrusive, dangerous, and stressful for the animals as well as for human participants.

In 2012 Kim Kardashian was doused with baking powder in a protest of Kardashian’s love for real fur.
