dolphinaria

"One of the most typical – not to say reprehensible – examples of man’s continued ignorance as regards the keeping of animals in captivity is the latest trend towards keeping cetacea in oceanaria or dolphinaria to train them, an activity which became fashionable in the 1940’s. In essence this is no different from the old attempts to satisfy man’s curiosity by means of performing animals in miserable traveling circuses or showmen with their pitiful dancing bear acts."~ Professor Giorgio Pilleri by mojavedolphins http://ift.tt/1vwyjSd
