Whale That Killed Trainer Back At SeaWorld

Tilikum, the male killer whale who has been in captivity for over three decades and been involved in the deaths of three people, is back at SeaWorld and slated to perform again.

The most recent death, which gained substantial media coverage, was on Feb. 24, 2010 when Tilikum drowned 40-year-old trainer Dawn Brancheau. Celebs like Hayden Panettiere, Bob Barker, and Matt Damon slammed SeaWorld for their treatment of the orca and continued use of him in shows.

Yet in spite of the media attention and backlash, the park has decided to throw Tilikum into their “Believe” show in Orlando starting this morning… Maybe they “Believe” that killer whales are meant for captivity??

According to The Huffington Post, the SeaWorld animal trainers feel that, “it’s an important part of Tilikum’s physical, social and mental enrichment to be back in the water.”

Seems like the park is not only putting the trainers lives in danger, but Tilikum’s too.

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.

Filing a case in the courts is a time-consuming and expensive affair and, sadly, doomed to fail because, by and large, the laws of the land reflect the views of the people.
