Because some of you had a freak out about my writing of the Olympics and the animal cruelty that is going on over there, I’m going to write about the States and Canada.
This is only my opinion of this documentary, so if this post makes you angry and you want to comment and try to yell at me, go ahead but yes I will be a bitch to you. I get you are only saying your opinion of my blog but I don’t give a shit what you say, these animals are suffering.
You’ve been warned.
My boyfriend came across a movie called Blackfish. Some of you have probably seen it, I however did not know this movie was around. I knew this situation happened but didn’t know many of the details since I was young when it happened. I am now 22 turning 23 this year and well aware after reading and a tiny bit of research.
For those of you who have no idea what this movie is about I will give you a little run through. A killer whale kills a trainer at SeaWorld by grabbing her arm and pulling her in. The whale wouldn’t let go of her arm and even after they got the body out the whale still had her arm. This movie talks about how they got this whale, where it started off and how it ended up at SeaWorld. This is not a happy story at all and it’s not the people I feel sorry for, it’s the whales.
They show everyone who was involved at the time except for the company because they are assholes. First they got these whales right out of the ocean by taking them away from their families, they bring them to this shit hole of a park in Canada and make them put shows on. At night these whales are kept it a metal box with water that isn’t very big. One whale ends up killing someone at this park and the park shuts down, but instead of letting these whales go, they sell them to SeaWorld. Of course they tell the owners that they can’t let this one whale be in shows with trainers because of this killing so SeaWorld says that they are only going to use him to breed. This is a lie.
This whale has pretty much a criminal record of how many people he has killed. In the movie is says that the only reason whales fins flop over like the whale in free willy is because they are held captive, not one whale out in the wild has a bent fin. This alone says something is wrong.
SeaWorld lies about a whole lot of things which I won’t get into because I get it is a company but they are just straight up assholes.
I know going to see these animal is amazing because if we didn’t have these shows most of us would never see them in our lives but if they are acting out so much that they kill because they don’t want to be there then let them go.
Some animals like to have owners like cats and dogs and maybe they’re fish that like to be taken care of by humans and have that relationship but you have the find the right one. SeaWorld still has this whale just no one is allowed to go in the water anymore, this poor fish can’t do anything but put on shows for food.
We all have done it, I get you want to see these animals, I’ve done it too. Hell I’m going to an aquarium this week, it just sucks.
This movie is online on some websites, it’s on Showbox and Netflix. Watch it if you want to, it is a good documentary but this is just my opinion.
