    Actually if any of you had watched the news you would of seen an animal behavioralist speaking. To a whale when he/she bonds with a trainer the whale feels like the trainer belongs to him. Most animal behavioralists think that he was jelaous that she had her back turned away and he wanted to play. He showed all the chacteristics of playing, not killing. IMHO he should be placed in a nice big tank in sea world without performing. Also Seaworld has been recongnized for their outstanding work with the whales. I went swimming with the Beluga whales while I was there and they listened to every signal. Yes there would be some species extinct without zoos and Seaworld.

    Just my 2 cents.

    I don't think that wild animals should be taken for our own pleasure but, if say, the animal was injured and unable to be retured to the wild then they could be put in some sort of educatinal program with proper living conditions and all. Other than that though, go on a safari trip for pete's sake!

    Actually, if you think you have to go to Seaworld to see a real orca think again. Go on a whale watch. I know in Victoria, Canada they take people out on whale watches. You see real whales in their natural habitat not confined to tiny tanks and doing shows that are for a monetary benefit. I do not agree that Seaworld is this great place where we can go see exotic animals. You would sacrifce an animals well being and happiness and health just so you can see it? Go on Google. I'm sure they have loads of pictures of the animals that you're so desperate to see up close.

    Maybe you should all do some reading on the subject.
    Just to clarify- I am not some PETA follower. I actually really don't like PETA at all.

    No problem :)

    Orcas are not endangered and in the wild, they have no natural enemies. They can even kill sharks. The only threat to orcas is man. So what is the point of having them in captivity? So they can be studied? No. Scientists study orcas in the wild and can learn just as much about them and possibly more.

    Sorry for the back to back posts but I found this and I thought it was very interesting.
