Release ALL animals. Close ALL SeaWorlds, and like "parks." Animals do not exist for humans' "entertainment." Animals do not go in to these parks and perform, willingly. They are deliberately removed from of their natural, rightful habitats, and FORCED into slavery and unnatural, repetitive, exhaustive action. They are USED and ABUSED. Close ALL SeaWorlds, circuses and like shows/"parks," NOW.
Say no to Sea world's cruelty to animals
humans are the cruellest animal. I raised my girls to believe that any animal in a cage was like keeping a human in the bathroom for life, this whale is kept in the bathtub.
unacceptable to keep animal in captivity . release please animal
Why do people go and see these shows!?!?! It's a sickeningly sick human trait, that loves to control and abuse animals and take away from the their natural habitat! The human race needs to enlighten themselves to the plight of helpless wildlife.... to stop eating them and get the message ... animals are not ours to use as we want~!!!
Seaworld move with the times or face your own extinction...we are not in the dark ages anymore there is no exvuse to provide an animal with such disgraceful livig conditions...its slavery and abuse. Please act now and do the best you can for tilikum and all your animals
This is not a natural environment for these animals and should be released!! It is absolutely appalling and we, in the western world should know much better!! Give them a life they deserve!!
While I understand the fascination with trained animals as large as this one, such a dynamic arises from an unnatural and inhumane need for basic elements of survival that include space and socialization that are not offered in confinement. Please, please find other ways to make money that don't involve cruelty. Fascinate your audience instead with your own humanity. Maybe acrobatic human divers? I'd pay to see that!
Grossly unacceptable to keep an animal of this size in captivity. Please release animals, like this one, to sanctuaries.
Why would we find forced captivity and trained performance of another living creature "entertainment"? Are we truly that divorced from our sense of reverence and respect for other beings? This is why I don't attend circuses, zoos, or places like SeaWorld.
