CAN YOU SEE TILIKUM?
among all the manmade rocks and metal gates and walls and columns?
he’s in solitary confinement ever since he killed his trainer.
whales are social animals. they travel and live in pods.
they are family. this is cruelty for tilikum.
his teeth have been ground down to nubs. NOTHING about his life is normal. NOTHING.
he is taken out once a day for his PERFORMANCE. for people who spend MONEY
keeping this HUGE CORPORATION going. . . and making more HUGE PROFITS
at these tragic animals’ expense.
if you have any kindness or feeling for these creatures in your heart at all . . .
you will tell EVERYONE you know . . . to NOT GO TO ANY SEA WORLD.
they tell you they care about the whales and the dolphins. they do not.
they care about MONEY. YOUR MONEY.
this corporation has no conscience. the only way to make them change is to hurt their pocket book.
even jane goodall has now condemned their operation.
many top level musical entertainers have boycotted sea world. because of the orcas and dolphins.
but you know something odd? even after the documentary blackfish was shown . . .
people just KEEP GOING. are we that hard up for entertainment?
NOBODY is going to make a difference in these marine animals’ lives except the people. WE the people.
the people who care enough NOT TO GO. and who tell SEA WORLD why we’re not going.
once you know of an ultimate cruelty to any animal . . . you can never UNKNOW it!
these beautiful beings were not created to do stupid parlor tricks for the masses of humanity.
they were made to swim in the open seas and breach with joy and abandon at their freedom!
to travel in families . . . raising their young . . . to enjoy their life as it was meant to be lived.
IN THE OPEN SEA!
SEA WORLD is fighting back with their new insipid commercial this year . . . . it’s airing now.
it’s a nice looking male and a female employee wearing their aqua blue shirt proclaiming to us all . . .
“WE LOVE OUR WHALES!” well . . . spare me! given what we know of their living conditions . . .
it’s an insult to my intelligence. their love is a joke.
IT’S ABOUT THE MONEY. AND DON’T YOU EVER FORGET IT!!!
like the old saying goes . . .
‘with friends like that … who needs enemies?’
he’s peering at his neighbor orcas . . . in the next cage . . .
who are not kept in much better surroundings than his.
THIS is the LIFE
of those magnificent animals living at sea world
for YOUR entertainment.
SeaWorld also announced that it raked in a record $1.46 billion in revenue for all of 2013, implying that revenue for the fourth and final quarter rose 3 percent to $271.7 million. It’s not spectacular growth, but it’s certainly a lot better than what worrywarts were fearing as the scathing documentary “Blackfish” began to nibble at SeaWorld’s reputation. … source … dailyfinance.com
ARE YOU ONE OF THE PEOPLE STILL GOING TO SEAWORLD?
DO YOU KNOW PEOPLE WHO ARE?
here are some facts about the history and operation
of the HUGE corporation that is
Five orcas currently at SeaWorld were kidnapped from their ocean homes, as were others who have since died. For example, Tilikum, a 32-year-old orca, was captured at the age of 2 by a marine “cowboy.” Tilikum wasn’t taken from his natural environment because he was injured—instead, he was torn away from his family against his will and confined to a small concrete tank for a hefty profit.
In 1965, the first-ever orca show at SeaWorld was performed by a female orca named Shamu at SeaWorld San Diego. During Shamu’s capture, her mother was shot with a harpoon and killed before the young orca’s very eyes by a marine “cowboy” named Ted Griffin. Griffin’s partner, Don Goldsberry, later worked for SeaWorld and was assigned to bring orcas into the park. He continued kidnapping and slaughtering orcas, and at one point, he hired divers to slit open the bellies of four orcas, fill them with rocks, put anchors around their tails, and sink them to the bottom of the ocean so that their deaths would not be discovered.
SeaWorld confines whales and dolphins—who often swim up to 100 miles a day in the wild—to tanks that, to them, are the size of a bathtub.
SeaWorld presents itself as a family establishment full of fun “educational” activities. However, these activities harm animals physically and emotionally. SeaWorld has the financial means and ability to create coastal sanctuaries, where the orcas would have a more natural and less stressful life and where they could feel the tides and waves; see, sense, and communicate with their wild relatives and other ocean animals; and engage in other natural behavior that they are now denied. However, the park instead chooses to stick with the same inhumane business model that it has used for 50 years, despite all the violent and deadly incidents and evidence of harm. Please say NO to SeaWorld and its enslavement of animals by refusing to buy a ticket to this abusement park, and ask the marine park to release these animals to sanctuaries.
