Killer whales could soon be off the show schedule at SeaWorld if a California lawmaker gets his way.

Assemblyman Richard Bloom has introduced a bill that would ban SeaWorld from using the whales, known as orcas, in their shows at the theme park.

Bloom says he was driven to author the bill after seeing the documentary "Blackfish," which makes allegations of animal abuse against the whales at SeaWorld.

SeaWorld officials have denied the abuse allegations and claim the film used extreme animal rights activists masquerading as scientists to paint an incorrect picture of orca treatment.
