When you see something as beautiful as...
Where does your mind go?
Are you thinking that this creature is absolutely beautiful and you cannot wait to go to Seaworld to watch yourself...or are you thinking it's tragic that they are doing this in captivity in a tiny place to swim around?
If you've ever watch the Cove, I know the answer you chose. If you haven't - I highly suggest you watch it!
A place close to me named Marineland posted this above photo a couple of days ago. The photo was getting so much attention - near 200 "likes." Someone posted something that had to do with the beautiful creature being in captivity and likely being sad and upset for not being able to do this in the ocean.
Would you believe that Marineland deleted the comment? First, what happened to freedom of speech? Second, was it because that was a true statement?
Personally, I absolutely love dolphins. They are one of my favorite animals...so smart & beautiful. But their story - especially when captivity is involved - is a very sad story...a story that tears at my heart strings. They don't want to be in a confined space, but would rather be in the wild, loving life. When you add the story depicted in the Cove, it is absolutely heart-wrenching.
I will end this by saying that at one time, we had season tickets to Seaworld...that time as passed.
