    Just because they feed a captive very, very large mammal in a very, very, very small tank doesn’t make them good people. These animals are meant to have freedom in a huge ocean. I applaud their efforts to nurse sick and wounded animals back to health but putting an Orca or porpoise in a small tank is inhumane.

    I think only someone who could truly talk to the whales could know that.

    And those in the picture are not the people who tear them away from their families in the wild, or in captivity if that’s where they’re born.
    Let’s see, I seem to remember that part of our country did that a century and a half ago. Remind me, what did we call that?

    Every tribe in Africa raided their neighbors for women and children to sell.The men,the young and the old were killed.Every tribe over there sold their ne’er do well’s and criminals.Some went to the coast to be sold and put on ships headed across the Atlantic.Some went across the Sahara.
    Boko Haram is doing the same thing today.
    When I lived in Nigeria in the 1960’s slavers were at work then.I remember stories in the paper about slave traders being captured and shot.Over there when they say “heads will roll”.That’s exactly what they mean.

    Captivitiy for “wild” animals does indeed suck, but so does extinction in the wild, where humans have destroyed all habitats, world-wide for many species.


    PETA also sucks with their constant anthropomorphizing of animals, and total misunderstanding of animal behavior in “the wild”. (eat or be an appetizer), or all those habitat zones like desert, jungle, savannah, oceans, streams, or lakes, where we can’t live.


    Deliberate mistreatment is wrong, but nether is our prison system for humans, and the minor crimes for which foks of the wrong “identity” routinely serve more time than the favored, and that actually is true in ALL cultures, pretty much.

    I witnessed it near Lake Victoria last November.

    “Slavery? You’re kidding, right?”

    No kidding. Deadly earnest.
    I saw it last year near Lake Victoria.
    My dog’s vet, Hutu (Tutsi mother) explained the practie in some depth.
    Mostly Muslim, but not entirely. Nominal Christians sometimes practice it.
    Male slaves are castrated.
    Men who have children usually don’t take female slaves because any children she bears may be considered his children ,whether he fathered them or not.
    Right to sexual service from female slaves is assumed.
    He says the only hope for ridding his country of slavery is, in his words, “the born-agains.”

    Whales don’t belong in swimming pools.

    My gripe with animal rights groups is all the misguided efforts. Yes, these are a relatively small number of captive wild animals and if they are to stay captive, they should be treated humanely. I wish more of them would focus on the much larger number of almost universally domesticated animals like dogs and cats who are euthanized and especially horses that go to slaughter, a much worse fate than euthanasia. I believe my calling in life is horse rescue because in my opinion, horse slaughter is the worst, active, purposeful and legal thing you can do to an animal that is acceptable to too many people worldwide.
