SAN DIEGO, Calif. — A sign on Interstate 5 near Mission Bay was found defaced Sunday.

Someone reportedly climbed to the top of the sign and painted over it, changing it to “Sea World Sucks.”

The incident happened during protests outside SeaWorld over Memorial Day weekend. Protesters expressed their concern of the orcas that are held in captivity.

“This act of vandalism demonstrates that, once again, these extremists are more concerned with publicity stunts than actually helping animals,” SeaWorld San Diego spokesman Dave Koontz stated Sunday.
