Faith in humanity is now gone.

Don’t give a shit anymore. Captivity supporters are all worthless fuckbags who get off on animal cruelty, claiming it’s all for “education” and “conservation.”

Like the Russian orcas, I hope Morgan sacrificing her freedom and well-being was worth it just to keep you selfish, greedy cunts entertained for a few hours. You get to go home, she gets to be locked up, beaten, raked to pieces and raped.


Can’t wait until humanity is wiped out, because fuck you.

Lol at SeaWorld’s attempt to “educate” about orcas on their Instagram page

Amazing. Orcas only travel at such speeds to wow the guests in a theme park.

Truly spectacular.

Have y’all seen their new video? “Want to know how killer whales sound?” What? They make noise?! And you recorded it?! Thanks SeaWorld! Where would we be with you?

Orcas are not your little toys to do tricks for your amusement. If you want an unquestioning animal that amazes people get a fucking dinosaur puppet.

I still don’t understand why they would think that AI-ing or even breeding Kalia at all is a good idea. If SeaWorld had any sort of decent, respectable breeding program Kalia would be out of the running for several reasons.

First, Kalia is a mess of hybrid population genes. Various ‘Icelandic’…

"My dog was taken from her mother as a baby/puppy and given to me. Here we are 10 years later and I guarantee you she would miss me more than her mother when I die. Kayla is captive born and is very attached to her trainers and I bet that if she misses anyone its Dawn."
Anthropomorphism? Check.
Comparing domestic pets to wild apex predators with completely different social structures? Check.
Idealizing a one sided relationship between trainer and Orca? Check.
Complete idiocy? Double Check.

Pro-caps are definitely some of the most selfish, ignorant creatures I’ve come across.

I envy the people who are ignorant to the suffering of animals in this world, what a peaceful life they must live. Those of us who see the cruelty carry a heavy heart and are in constant battle with those who believe animals don’t deserve freedom.

As they say: “ignorance is bliss.”

Captivity supporters must live ecstatically happy lives.

Orkid at SeaWorld, August 1989. Going through the photographer’s SeaWorld gallery this was most likely taken before her mother’s death.

I’m kind of tired of saying things about orca captivity to people as I try to inform them and they just go

"Oh, you saw Blackfish too?"

NO! It’s not all about freaking Blackfish oh my god. This debate has been going on for decades, it didn’t suddenly start with this documentary, okay!? 

Anticap since high school myself.

Funnily enough, I was against marine parks a few months before a local TV station aired “Whale of a Business.” I didn’t need to be “brainwashed” by “sensationalistic propaganda” to turn against places like SeaWorld. I found information on my own, looked at both sides and said “nope” to captivity. The documentaries I watched were just the icing on the cake, if you’ll excuse the cliché.

(via lif3-can-do-t3rrible-things)

I cannot look at photos of captive orcas and think “wow, what a great life they have” because all I see is what’s left of a majestic, apex predator after years locked in a box. A being stripped of its free will just to please selfish, ignorant humans. Education? Fuck off. Nothing educational about whales floating in a blue box. Nothing to learn from watching them splash tourists with their tails or spit water at them. Being used as surfboards, “break dancing” on the slide-outs or “dancing” with their captors to name a few.

They aren’t orcas any more. They’re a corporate entity’s playthings, turned into shells of their wild counterparts. Wilted, worn-out, inbred, sick and dying animals.

I’m so fucking glad I’m not a SeaWorld cultist. I don’t think I could live with myself.

I’ve got the feeling that Kalia’s pregnancy is SeaWorld’s way of distracting the public from it’s bad rep by being able to turn around and wave a baby orca at everyone, hoping the cuteness from yet another captive-born animal will melt away all the negativity aimed at them.

All I see is another money-maker in the works. Soon they’ll end up with not enough space, so they’ll go and ship off more orcas to other parks.

I mean, they were expressing interest in expanding overseas, yes? Well, here ya go. More baby orcas being born and eventually they’ll be taken away to fill more tanks. Probably on “breeding loan” like the Loro Parque orcas.
