“We don’t even know if there was a bond between Kalina and Skyla. Some whales give birth, and then after the young one is grown, can be trained on their own, no need for mom, they literally become nothing more then pod mates.”
It is disgusting that some procaps are using (or have used) Kalina’s death as a shitty example of how the banning of waterworks will kill the animals. Never mind the fact that her illness was not only sudden, but even when trainers were allowed in the water (not just at SeaWorld but other parks as well) that some orcas display symptoms of an illness and die after a few hours to a few days. There is nothing to suggest that having people in the water helps to detect potentially fatal illness any faster.
And what of orcas such as Tilikum? Orcas such as Orkid and Kasatka, who due to their aggressive and unpredictable natures, were removed from waterworks. If they had died before 2010, would anyone be blaming it on the lack of in-water trainer interaction?
Procaps using Kalina’s death like a soapbox to argue how fatal it is to not have waterworks disgusts me just as much as SeaWorld’s exploitation of her.
Seriously, who would belittle the procaps like that? I mean, they’re just as entitled to their opinions as we are, and they’re just as passionate about what they believe. I mean, both sides have said some dumb shit, but that’s no reason to make fun of them! People need to learn some tolerance and acceptance, and act like adults.
A few of you already know this about me but to those who do not, I am legally blind. Most times I have a family member read to me, whether from fb, tumblr, whatever. I try to do the best I can but I do make mistakes somerimes. Pictures are very difficult for me to see but the person reading to me describes them to me and I try to see what I can with magnifiers and other tools. I just came across a post from shitprocapssay where I misidentified ruffles as a female. Just wanted to thank you for making fun of a disabled person. I pray nothing like this ever happens to you. I realize you probably didnt know but maybe thats why your entire blog is nothing short of bullying and shouldnt exist in the first place, because you dont know the people you are bullying or how your nasty comments might hurt them. Sadly, i feel that you would have done it anyway. Anything to further the anticap agenda goes, right? You are one class act.
Okay I am a pro-cap and man some of the shit some of us say and the bs facts some of the pro-caps shoot out is hilarious and just unbelievable.
Im sorry but even I know that Shouka being forced into a med pool with 3 MALE orcas who reached sexuality is WRONG. And this one idiot seems to think its like a human girl hanging with 3 guy friends. Yeah okay…-__-;
