I’ve had several people tell me to watch that movie and it keeps popping up on netflix but I can’t do it! I’m so sensitive when it comes to animals I’m sure it will just haunt me.

@PermaStudent:  it is really insane. I think it’s extra hard to watch things with animals because they cannot express themselves… They can’t ask for help or for us to stop. Ugh. 🙁

@PermaStudent:  it is astounding,  the very beginning when they were taking the babies from their families…I could not even. Ugh… 

 

This is just crazy. 

When did you turn it off?

We just watched it last night! My sister (she is 11) is staying with us and her and I watched it. As soon as my husband woke up this morning we all three watched it. I told my mom about it and she just watched it about an hour ago! I think everyone needs to watch this movie. If you asked me two years ago to join you in a trip to Seaworld I would have said okay. Not now, not EVER!

@oliviajuice:  It really opened my eyes. I’m so glad it did for others, too! I just had no idea, I was so ignorant to the facts that these poor whales suffer so, so much. 🙁

@PermaStudent:  Oh my god, I bawled several times through the movie. Takeaway message I got: never EVER buy a ticket to sea world or anywhere like it that holds orcas and dolphins captive.

@Sweet.Sugar.Rose:  it is really awful… And its killing me how they are trying to pass off the blame…on anything other than the animals being in captivity.

@oliviajuice:  I know! That just kills me, makes me so angry. “It was the trainers fault. Timing error, ect.” Anything other than the animals fault. In reality though, it’s the ass hats that own and run Seaworld’s fault for making these poor whales suffer day in and day out. And giving out mis information to the trainers! 🙁 ugh! Sorry rant over. lol
