You take a wild animal out of its natural environment, put it in a large bathtub, force it to perform and exhibit unnatural behaviors every day in front of a lot of people, and when it reacts this way, people are aghast.<br><br><br><br>
People are stupid. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":rolleyes:">

Kind of reminds me of when monticore the white tiger attacked his trainer and what Chris Rock said "everybody said the tiger went crazy...the tiger went tiger" Wild animals belong in the wild.

Orcas are the "wolves of the sea." Predators will be predators.

Who do they think they are!!! Just 'cause they're bigger or stronger or a lot more deadly than we are, they think they can just take advantage of us and dispose of us how they please! Pshhh... ignorant animals!<br><br><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":rolleyes:"><br><br><br><br>
Of course, it's all the poor Orca's fault and she'll probably be put down or something... oh wait, nevermind, that would probably be too "cost ineffective"!

I saw Happy Feet and was very pleased with it.<br><br><br><br>
I read about the orca... and am not surprised it tried to drown him or whatever. Perhaps he was trying to communicate with the trainer that he didn't exactly want to do the "trick". It's not like the orca speaks english.

^^ I am deliberately NOT clicking on that link. I just know it will tick me off. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
If I were Shamu, I'd probably try to eat my trainer <b>and</b> eat the entire audience.<br><br><br><br>
Yet another reason to liberate animals.

Okay, I just needed to do a wee bit venting since I'm sure my husband gets tired of hearing it. I'm sure you've heard of the killer whale "attacking" the trainer at SeaWorld. They're actually saying the whale "may have been in a bad mood". No Sh**! That is ridiculous. Now trainers from all their parks are "...planning to confer to figure out why the whale attacked." A bad day? What about a bad life? They even admit these natural predators (that's what they are, perhaps they shouldn't confine them) are forced to perform as much as 8 times a day, everyday and they still can't figure out why the whale would act out. Okay, there's my vent for the day. Thank you for letting me get this off my chest.<br><br><br><br><span style="color:#0000FF;">Weird...I didn't realize there was already a thread on this subject and I started one on it. Then "poof" it was magically merged with this ongoing one. Neat!</span> <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/bow.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":bow:">

It is just sick that we (humans) think we can just rule this world and take what we want when we want it!<br><br>
What is going on in the minds of people who do not even THINK that <b>KIDNAPPING</b> an animal is NOT OK then forcing it to do things it is NOT meant to do!?!?!?<br><br>
They truly believe that animals have no feelings and that they don't know any better. Obviously, Shama knows better. <b>WAY TO GO SHAM! SHOULD OF KEPT HIM UNDER LONGER</b>!<br><br><br><br>
I just don't friken get it!!!! I just don't......I vented and now I am sad and angry again about this....

Saying the whale was having a bad day is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard. Whales are NOT HUMAN! - Having a bad day is giving the whale human characteristics and it is A WHALE. It belongs in the ocean and not in a tank performing tricks.<br><br><br><br>
On a strangely positive note. I was listening to Rush Limbaugh this morning (I like to keep up with what the other side is thinking) and he was right on the money about this. (There is a first time for everything. haha. )<br><br>
He was saying whales belong in the ocean and not in a small tank - and that whales have instincts and it is insane to think we can change their nature. I hope all his dittoheads were listening closely.
