Killer whales and other aquatic animals should be released from seaworlds around the globe

After 25 years in captivity, releasing into the wild would be a death sentence! The trainer just gave too much trust and a pony tail is a toy, even to a house cat.

February 26, at This Whale is a meal ticket for Sea World the only way there going to release it or put it down is for the authorities to say enough is enough and force there hand I say set it free this whale will survive money is the reason for none release. Too many yrs in captivity I think-not sure but something needs to drastically change for this animal living in a small pool is outrageous and cruel.

These whales are highly intelligent, he was probably not in the mood for working overtime just for a few more fish. Any one who thinks this Whale is going to starve to death in the ocean is an idiot the only thing it has to worry about is conflict with other Whales.

After all, animals or in this case a mamal, are just that, and they act accordingly so. Trainers working with wild animals are taking risks and they know it. Do not punish a wild creature for acting naturally. Wild animal trainers are taking risks like mountain climbers and other risks takers.

No one suggests destroying the mountain when a climber dies. They are to big to live in a pool. If at all possible return him to the sea where he came from. I just cannot fathom putting him down. It has told you it does not want to play with you any more.
