Footage of Orca and Dolphin Being Caught from the Wild

"They will never see their family or the ocean again.  The situation for killer whales is little different and has for decades involved to a great extent, the largest, wealthiest, and most politically powerful of all marine parks, SeaWorld Incorporated"

You should watch this if you haven’t seen it.  Very interesting.  And as usual, go fuck yourself, SeaWorld.

I fucking hate them i fucking hate them i fucking hate them i fucking hate them i fucking HATE THEM. SEAWORLD IS NUMBER ONE ON MY FUCKING SHIT LIST.

I don’t care who you are you need to watch this to understand. SEAWORLD DROPPED FUCKING BOMBS TO CATCH WHALES. IT WAS ILLEGAL.

SeaWorld single handedly rendered the entire local orcas endangered, taking a whole generation gap. These pods are fractured because of what SeaWorld has done. Many orcas died in these captures, four of which were found with weights in them, their bellies slit open to sink them. lord only knows how many we never found. SeaWorld was behind that, too.  Watch this video, if only to educate yourself- it isn’t very long, only about six minutes.

Look how sterile the environment is. There’s nothing. No toys,

The tank is so shallow :(

Thank you Sea World, for all the education you provided while I visited your park.

Yes folks, that’s it. They don’t even talk during the killer whale shows, they just order the animals to splash you with the water they throw up and defecate in.

Please repeat after me:

My desire to see cetaceans up close does not outweigh their right to live in the wild as nature intended.”

Delving into various research avenues recently i came across the fact that aside from that the UK no longer had marine parks i did not realize why. Why the UK no longer has captive Dolphins or Whales is because of public opinion. The public put their collective foot down in the 90’s voted to close down these parks boycotted them and eventually the parks lost money and closed down. Which was brilliant news for some of the captured Dolphins whom were able to be freed but for the orca and other dolphins they were sold. 
With Blackfish being plastered everywhere right now and everyone knowing what cruelty it is to keep them in captivity - and now with the internet on our sides i think we could do it again- for all whales/dolphins not just Orca.
(Other countries too have passed laws including Croatia)

Wounds caused by overloading and insufficient padding are common amongst donkeys, horses and mules in Ethiopia. The Brooke works to teach owners what equipment to use on their animals, how much a mule or donkey can carry, for how long, and what it needs along the way in terms of water, feed, and rest. And when this mule arrives at its destination, what else does it need? To be unloaded, some water and a chance to rest in the shade. If possible it needs the company of other mules too. Not only are we working to educate the owners on how to better care for their animals, we also work to build shade shelters like this one so that when the donkeys arrive at a busy market, they have a place to rest. 
Can you help us reach more animals like this?
