    "The whales are cared for waaaaaay better than if they out in the open, medical care, and love/attention, etc."

    Really? Did I just read that an orca from a large family who is isolated from his/her family for life to live in a pool is treated better than in the wild? You honestly believe that? Perhaps you should study up on orcas a little. I think they'll take the "love/attention" from their families over the Sea World staff any day. Orcas are not solitary all.

    This is moronic. The whales are cared for waaaaaay better than if they out in the open, medical care, and love/attention, etc. Plus, contrary to what liberals say, animals are not on the same level as people. Yes, animals, as living creatures, should be treated with respect, but that doesn't mean they have all the same 'rights' as people. Liberalism run amok....

    I remember a time in my youth when the animal activists encouraged us to go to sea world and other natural wild life facilites like zoos,and aquariums to learn about these animals. How ironic that the supposed supporters are now the attackers. Talk about cannibalizing their own. Animal rights activist seem to be slipping further down the insanity road. OR are they eventually going to wake up and realize they're an animal life form as well and part of the eco system they claim to support. Have this same problem here. How many more city weekend warrior, PETA supporting, university eggheads are we going to have to rescue off the mountain hiking trails and back woods ski areas because they go off the track, don't follow trail signs, and ignore warnings meanwhile the people they mock and attack like the outdoorsman, the hunter,the fisherman, and the farmer can only marvel at their arrogant foolishness.If evolution has taught us anythig its maybe city life intellectualism is destroying are natural common sense instincts and we're de-evolving into sociatal community amoebas.

    Animal shows are a large factor in getting people interested in caring for and preserving them in the first place. On top of that, reputable organizations such as SeaWorld treat their animals well; the "bad guys" who would misuse these animals or keep them in poor conditions will continue to do so despite measures to outlaw it.
