MaudlinMutantMollusk: If you neuter a killer whale, is it orca-stration?
Contrabulous Flabtraption: Can we stop trying to make laws based on emotionally-driven documentaries? For F*ck's sake NASA kills far more people by far than Orcas do and you all go bananas when they lose funds.
mechgreg: Do places lile seaworld do any actual research on the animals like a legitimate zoo or aquarium might, or is it all just about putting on a show?
jshine: mechgreg: Do places lile seaworld do any actual research on the animals like a legitimate zoo or aquarium might, or is it all just about putting on a show?I loved the Sea World show as a kid. Saw 'blackfish', but it didn't really change my opinion. If someone wants to get into a pen with a *killer* whale, they know what they're going into.
JohnBigBootay: I think most of the staffs of these places are animal lovers. And I think they genuinely care about the animals. And that most of them would die if you let them go. And that all these large more intelligent animals in captivity are essentially insane. Let the ones they have fulfill their 'purpose' as humanely as possible. Then end the practice. I won't spend a dime on it. I know it's not completely black and white but I still think it's essentially something that a true conservationist would be seeking to end. The original allure of all that shiat was to see something up close you likely had no reasonable expectation of every being able to see. With ubiquitous modern hd video we can see up a whales vagina in 1080p with freeze frame any time we choose. Seeing them do flips is hardly necessary.
