Keiko’s “warm water” in Oregon was a nice, chilly 49 degrees fahrenheit. The water in Norway around this time of year is about 46 degrees, but during the summer months can warm up to as high as 58 degrees. So naturally, this makes perfect sense! That, and he’d was living in the actual ocean since September 1998 and died in December 2003.
Sometimes, logic and facts just don’t matter to people.
Let’s see… what happened, Takara, being bored with being sent on the same few behaviors since she’s been on behavior restrictions for several months, decided to do something that was more creative. But it’s not what she was asked to do, but Takara did want she wanted to do, therefore, she was nor bridged or rewarded and got upset and stopped the show, which she’s well known to do.
But I am sure in this person’s very limited experience viewing the animals they know way more about orcas, the situation, and more about Takara’s typical behavior than anyone else.
Well, if I go to SeaWorld Florida, I don’t have to choose. I can see them both. And while I understand the point you are trying to make, I just feel it would be more effective with a real photo of an actual wild orca than a photoshopped image of captive orca, Katina…
Genetics: doesn’t work that way.
<sarcasm>Or wait, I know! They took Kalina’s eggs and put them in Katina… and Nalani is actually Kalina’s daughter but Katina gave birth to her! Ya know, like Makani is really Orkid’s calf and not Kasatka’s calf?</sarcasm>
Remember? Makani’s Maternity Suit
You *could* make the case that the majority of SeaWorld’s pilot whales have been rescued… but you cannot make the claim that the majority of SeaWorld’s animals are rescued. SeaWorld’s animals ultimately came from the wild and from captive breeding. And while some rescued animals do live at SeaWorld, they do not make up the majority of the animals that are currently at or have ever been at SeaWorld.
Sometimes, it’s useful to read what people say on the original source before jumping to conclusions… Regardless of your opinion, they did choose to be in that pool together.
