    What crime? Does FL (or any state) have a law that makes it illegal for an Orca to drag their trainer underwater?

    There is no reason at all for the public to ever lay eyes on that video. None.

    People who know nothing about marine life or whales aren't going to glean any special knowledge. People who already think animals shouldn't be kept captive aren't going to learn anything. People who like zoos aren't going to stop liking them.

    I'm sorry, but I consider anyone who actually wants to see that video as twisted and depraved as the ones who make/watch that snuff porn or whatever it's called.

    She had a family that loved her and is mourning her. If you can't understand that & respect it, try and imagine people demanding to watch one of YOUR babies die just 'because'.

  • I don't know, I think it might reinforce the idea that wild animals ought to remain in the wild...and that they're still dangerous even when you *think* you've domesticated and trained them.

  • NO- it would serve little purpose.


    Anon- if folks do not already understand that concept, I doubt this will seal the deal- It's just so obvious, at least to me.
