So sad that such lovely animals are held in such captivity ! Human greed can't get worse than this :-(

Some years ago I was at Sea World in Florida. My friend and I were having a blast. We walked, played and laughed in the sun while our poor husbands had to go to a conferance, the reason we were all there. We were walking past a huge pool. "Pet the Porpoise" on the sign so we walked over. She was chicken but I reached into the pool to pet the animal up against the side of the tank. When I touched the porpoise and looked into her eye I was shocked like she was electric. I was shocked and...

When I touched the porpoise and looked into her eye I was shocked like she was electric. I was shocked and suddenly I was stricken with sadness and desperation. She was begging for something and in a few moments I realized what it was -- freedom. She wanted the same freedom we all enjoy and take for granted. Those animals are out prisoners and they suffer. They've been seperated from their loved ones and thrown into a world they don't know and they hate. What is done with these animals is criminal. We have enough film and pictures -- we don't need to imprison and torture these intelligent animals. FREE THEM!

Free them you say, but what about the ones that were born and raised in captivity? What about the ones that were taken into captivity because they were injured or sick? Did you account for them? Do you realize that releasing them into the wild is basically sending them to their deaths? Releasing them, when they are so used to captivity, is almost torture to them and torture to the people that built special bonds with them.

Free them you say, but what about the ones that were born and raised in captivity? What about the ones that were taken into captivity because they were injured or sick? Did you account for them? Do you realize that releasing them into the wild is basically sending them to their deaths? Releasing them, when they are so used to captivity, is almost torture to them and torture to the people that built special bonds with them. Signing this means that you want hundreds, if not thousands, of animals get basically sentenced to death. It's great that you care, it really is. But you're not seeing the big picture. These animals are used to captivity. They will end up being too interested in human activities and, with all of the whalers that are out there, will increase their chances of getting killed. Is that what you want, releasing these animals only for them to not last very long? Again, it's great that you care, as I love these animals too, but open your eyes to the cruel reality.

ANimals belong in their natural habitat... if you want to see an Orca... get in a damn boat!

Maybe we should hold the people responsible for this in captivity, and charge the public to come and ogle at them through cages, feed them and get them to do tricks. I wonder how they would like it. The comment regarding releasing Orca back to its natural environment, Lilltha v Rose Moran. If they were not held in captivity in the first place there would not be a problem to start with. These mammals were ment to swim freely in the sea not in a pool.

Dear ladies and gentlemen. I personally think it's beautiful the orcas and dolphins so on the seven seas in the world to crave is determined not nice at all good for the residents there to swim in the clear sea small pool. They should be in their natural environment where they belong towards seaworld etc. Earn with the suffering of the animals is not in order. we have to stop because they torment the animals.
