SAN DIEGO (KUSI) - Last week, the California Coastal Commission approved the park's plan to enlarge it's orca tank, but with a catch.

One demand is that the park no longer capture killer whales in the wild, a stipulation SeaWorld readily agreed to since it hadn't done that in over 30 years.

What most observers didn't expect were the other stipulations by the Coastal Commission.

In order to do the expansion, SeaWorld must limit the number of killer whales in the park to 15 and they must end it's killer whale breeding program.

Legal analyst Wendy Patrick sat down the KUSI to talk about the legal aspects of this decision.
