Kim Kardashian: Slammed by PETA For "Dangerous" Dolphin Ride

by at . Comments

Kim Kardashian loves to take vacation photos. In fact, Kim took 1,200 selfies on her recent trip to Thailand, alone.

She gets plenty of "likes" by documenting her travels, but a video that Kim posted online yesterday has attracted the wrong kind of attention.

The animal rights group PETA has condemned Kim for posting footage of herself riding dolphins with the caption "Double dolphin ride...Thank you so much for Vallarta Adventures for teaching us so much! Can't wait to show my daughter pics of her swimming with dolphins and kissing a sea lion when she gets older!"

PETA Vice President Lisa Lange who issued a statement saying, "Kim is free to leave the pool, but for the dolphins, it's a life sentence."

"Animals in 'petting pools' can become injured and anxious as a result of constant poking and prodding," Lange continues. "Exposure to bacteria they are not immune to can make them ill. The dolphins often express their frustration through aggression."

This isn't the first time that Kim has angered the radical activist group. Last year, PETA slammed Kim for wearing furs and "setting a bad example" for her then-unborn daughter.

Kim has yet to respond to the criticism and the video is still on her Instagram page.
