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.

Dear Rose Thank you for that information surely the whole point of the petition is to show, that incarceration of any animal in a zoo is wrong. We need to educate beings not to interfere with the natural life cycle of any creature. Note I did not say Human beings ! As many that inhabit of this world are far from Human.

None of these large mammals should be in captivity in the first place! These beings are not designed to be in tanks, they are designed for open expanse of water. SeaWorld had no ethics nor morals. Children would have to educate adults that this is wrong as they are more in tuned with these mammals and understand that they live on the oceans!
