Couple of J24s inside the breakwater. you can see the boat to the right is heeling quite a bit and the boat to the left is spilling the gust out of their mainsail. Very gusty conditions this day. 15 knots gusting to 20+ I’d say.
Rick, Rick PLEASE, we're all begging you. Don't do anything to j24-9w, please! If you EVER loved Mordecai, let him have this, please, let him be happy! PLEASE, don't be the bad guy just this once, Rick!
*chuckles* You all give me the most wonderful ideas.
Removing organs is easy as long as you have a trained professional do it. I'm willing to volunteer myself. The main problem is keeping him in a stable condition while it is extracted. He will loose a lot of blood and his immune system might not handle it if the wrong people do it. Be smart people. I know some of you have brains.
So while I was looking through the Southern Resident Killer Whale family tree, I realized you can see very clear gaps where calves should have been born in the 60′s. Obviously these gaps were caused by the captures but for some reason being able to clearly see which mothers most likely had calves taken from them hit me really hard, so I compiled a list of the female orcas that had gaps in their family tree and a little bit about their family
J2 Granny (No 100% known calves, likely had them though)
J5 Saratoga (Mother of J17 Princess Angeline, aunt of J22 Oreo)
J7 Sucia (Original matriarch of the J16s)
J8 Spieden (No recorded calves, likely taken in the captures)
J12 Sissy (Potentially lost 2 calves, one being J24. Mother of J14 Samish)
K4 Morgan (Mother of K12 Sequim, her only recorded calf)
K8 Tumwater (Original matriarch of the K14s)
K11 Georgia (Mother of K13 Skagit, her only recorded calf)
K18 Kiska (Mother of K21 Cappuccino, the only member left of her pod)
L3 Oreana (Grandmother of L84 Nyssa, the only member left of her pod)
L4 Sonar (Had 12 grandkids from her 4 recorded calves)
L9 Hopi (Mother of L3 Oreana)
L12 Alexis (Grandmother of L41 Mega)
L21 Ankh (Original matriarch of the L47s)
L25 Ocean Sun (Potentially lost 2 calves, one being Lolita. Only member left)
L28 Misky (Mother of L85 Mystery, the only member left of her pod)
L35 Victoria (Mother of L54 Ino, very likely lost 1 or more calves to captivity)
L37 Kimo (Grandmother of L72 Racer, likely lost a calf in the Penn Cove captures)
We know for sure that 26 young members of the SRKW population were taken as well as others that it is unsure whether they were SRKWs. Around 13 known SRKWs died in the captures including mothers trying to get to their calves. It is very evident in K pod that mothers died during the captures as there were very few breeding females at the time that the study of the SRKWs started, yet there were quite a few members of K pod taken into captivity.
‘What in the hell is wrong with you people?
You guys went and did the one thing Mordecai has asked us not to do countless times…….
You spoke for him…..
You forced @summersanchezlives and @j24-9w to do something you didn’t even knew Mordecai agreed or would survive to and now the cure might as well be GONE, scratch that IT IS’ -my friend again
