Exactly! My DH has been to countless SeaWorld shows and laughs about the frequency of the whales acting up. The trainers simply stop the show and explain what is going on. You don't force a 12,000 ocra.Nobody MAKES the whales do anything. If they decide they dont want to perform, the show is canceled. At some points of the year, there are 2 shows a day. Its been that way for the past 2 months. And the shows are mental stimulation and exercise for the whales. These whales were born in captivity. I dont uderstand how many times that has to be mentioned. Seaworld doesnt go out and pluck them from the wild. So Its you that doesnt realize where Seaworlds whales came from in the first place, they came from right there at Seaworld.
Granted, Tilly did come from the wild but most of the SW animals are captive bred. In a perfect world animals would not be used for our entertainment. But this is most definitely not a perfect world and SW cares for its animals as best as it can. Anyone who believes those animals are overworked in the shows needs to see more of the shows as the truth is readily apparent. They work when they want to and don't when they don't.
