Free Seaworld's Killer Whales !

For those of you who have not heard about the tragic death of an animal trainer at Seaworld in Florida... one of the killer whales, after a performance and out of mounting frustration, grabbed the trainer and held her underwater where she was drowned. Evidently she was one of the best trainers in the field... may she rest in peace and my sincere condolences to her friends and families.

This blog is an appeal to my readers to take the time to read a most excellent article written by a CNN reporter, Jane Velez-Mitchell- an animal activist who, as I, is advocating for the release of these giant, highly intelligent, social creatures back into their natural habitat. Tilikum has now been in captivity for 25 yrs confined in 'bath tub size' tanks (relative to the whale's size) whilst ordinarily killer whales would be swimming over 100 miles a day !

Obviously... whales that have been kept in captivity for so long, are not likely to be as well equipped to survive in the wilderness of the waters as those who have lived in the oceans all their lives. Some countries have created protected sanctuary areas in solution.

Seaworld plans to resume their mega money making shows as soon as tomorrow... with heavier restrictions imposed on the trainers. They have determined that the trainer was at fault for having exposed her long pony tail which Tilikum grabbed to play with.

Here is the link to the CNN article:

Please send an e-mail to Hamilton James, the President of The Blackstone Group, which operates SeaWorld. Urge SeaWorld to get out of the captive whale business:
