Blackfish

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. 

Sochi Animal Cruelty.

I’m sure you’ve all heard about the Olympics on TV, radio and such, but have you heard about what they are doing to animals over there? 

Now I’m just going off of what I’ve heard and read about, I’m not naming names or anything. I’m just writing about what I’ve heard and my opinion of it. If this is going to bother you then you better stop reading now. 

You’ve been warned. 

The first thing that I heard about was with the whales. If you’ve haven’t heard about the whales, the situation with them is two wild whales have been captured and are being put in a tank on display for the Olympics. When whales are captured and put in captivity their life span is extremely shortened and they can suffer from sensory deprivation. When you take an animal away from where it lives, you’re taking it away from it’s family. All you mothers and fathers, imagine someone taking your child away from you and not knowing where they are going, how would you feel? It’s the same thing, so don’t say I’m blowing this up by comparing it to humans. Every person and animal have families, they were made, they have mums and dads, they have someone who loves them and taking those whales away from their families is animal cruelty. 

After hearing about this my opinion of Sochi was they’re assholes. I’m sorry if you live there but this is what people are thinking, I’m just saying it out loud. Yes whales are beautiful and fun to see because it’s not something you see everyday but why do you need to take them away from where they live? If you really want to see whales that bad, go whale watching but this is completely stupid. I honestly don’t understand why they even thought of this, what does a whale have to do with the Olympics anyways? Cheer for your damn country and that’s that. 

There is a petition that you can sign to get them to put them back in their homes which has been sent off to see if it will work. To me, this is not a positive imagine for Sochi at all, if anything it’s just making them look bad. Yes you want everything to be perfect and look amazing but this, this is too much and isn’t right. 

The second thing I heard about going on over there was with dogs. Apparently they have a lot of stray dogs around where the Olympics are being held and instead of taking them to a shelter and trying to get them better so people can make them pets and take care of them, they hired a company to kill them off. 

There first thought was to kill them off because no one wanted them, how the fuck do you know if someone doesn’t want a dog? I’ve had dogs my whole life, they are amazing animals. They’re the only animal that I know of that freaks their shit when you come home, they literally wait all day long for you to come home and to get some love from you. 

Now I’ve heard they after this got released, the company said they would make a shelter for them but no shelter has been seen being built. I’m assuming they were lying assholes and continued to do what they were doing. Once again Sochi, you look like a complete dick.

Now to me if anyone abuses animals in anyway (which includes taking them away from their homes), should be shot. They are helpless, they don’t speak English so they can’t beg you to stop. I yell at people if I see them being mean to animals, it’s so wrong on so many levels. Anyone who abuses animals is a sick fuck and you might as well be in the same category as a rapist.

After hearing about these two things it made me say I wasn’t going to watch the Olympics. All they want is money and they are doing it all the wrong ways.

I really hope Sochi fixes these two fuck ups because I know this isn’t going away for them, it’s just making the place look terrible.

That’s just my opinion.
