Bowing to years of pressure from animal rights activists, U.S. theme park operator SeaWorld said Thursday it would stop breeding killer whales and that those currently at its parks would be the last.California regulators had earlier agreed to allow SeaWorld to expand its orca habitat at SeaWorld San Diego, but only on the condition that the company cease captive breeding and the transfer of new killer whales to the park.Some activists had called for SeaWorld to release its orcas into coastal sanctuaries.
