Captured juvenile orca too traumatized to swim (x)
What you see here is footage of a juvenile orca who was just captured from the wild. The orca is so traumatized and disorientated that it can’t even swim, it just rolls over onto it’s side.
This is how marine parks gets their orcas. This is what you support when you support marine parks.
“But it doesn’t happen anymore!”
Yes, it does. It’s currently happening in Russia. The Russians have seen how orcas can make them millions of dollars by watching corporations such as Seaworld and now they want in on the action it too.
Not to mention that most marine parks which holds orcas still have wild caught orcas in their possesion. Wild caught orcas who all went through what you see in the gifs above.
As long as there is a demand to see these animals in captivity they will continue to be caught. So stop creating a demand by going to these parks.
