Oh, Halle — how could you?
Academy Award winning actress Halle Berry was spotted with her daughter Nahla Aubrey at Sea World on Sunday afternoon.
As many already know, these marine parks are essentially prison for animals and have some pretty shady track records.
Just last year a dolphin named Sharky (Is that like a cat named Doggy?) collided with another dolphin during a live performance at Sea World and died shortly afterwards.
Florida’s Sun-Sentinel recently examined 30 years of federal documents pertaining to marine animals and found that nearly 4,000 sea lions, seals, dolphins, and whales have died in captivity, and of the 2,400 cases in which a cause of death was listed, one in five animals died “of uniquely human hazards or seemingly avoidable causes.”
What do you think about Sea World and other marine parks? Would you take your children? Chime in and share your thoughts!
