Airport officials cite new policy

ORLANDO, Fla. – The Orlando International Airport is refusing to display advertisements from PETA that bash SeaWorld, according to a published report.

The Orlando Sentinel reports that PETA wants to show an ad next to SeaWorld's store at the airport that shows a whale biting what appears to be the CEO of SeaWorld.

Airport officials cited a policy that better regulates public-issue advertisements.  Officials put the new rules in place over the summer after PETA placed a similar ad at the San Diego International Airport.  SeaWorld also has a park in San Diego.

The Sentinel says PETA is now looking into its legal options.
