we were too late with all the committee talk, Bernie's been taken by some Indonesian Fruit Salad Bat
my point wasn't about their species but the fact that they've been "marketed" as these lovable bright sea creatures that can do really clever tricks. However, Now that we see , in captivity, they go nuts and frequently attack, and a few times have even killed their keepers,
We should rethink this entire entertainment industry.
Well, yes. Something with "killer" in its name doesn't sound entirely suitable as a performer.
The poor Orcas probably bloody hate it, too.
There was an interesting piece of the radio last night about "Killer Whales," and how they were hunted in the 1950s, when everyone thought it was OK. For example, in the mid-1950s, they rounded up a bunch of bored American servicemen in Iceland and sent them to sea in boats armed with rigles and machine guns to kill the killer whales. They claimed that when a killer whale was wounded the others would swarm the wound animal. What we now know is that they will surround the wounded animal and attempt to buoy him or her up so that he or she will not drown. It was a pretty grizzly story.
My apologies if this is a bit off-topic:
Was that the same special about Orca? The one I watched was called Blackfish and I saw this recently - like last week. It talked about the early days like you mentioned. Then it discussed about controversies over the loss of lives of a few of the trainers at Seaworld due to mismanagement of orca.
Actually Bernie has been taken from a new species of organic bunnies.
Oh my god! organic bunnies!?
what is organic bunnie!?
