Did you hear about the Seaworld Orca death?  In addition to being an awful way to die (albeit possibly a quick death) I can hardly imagine what it must be like to be in captivity?  Especially performance captivity?  What if Orca just didn’t feel up to performing yesterday but had to anyway?  Maybe he was having a tantrum or didn’t want to perform or felt out of it?  The whole thing seems so unfair … the Orca couldn’t call in sick or its equivalent.  Yesterday I felt out of it and I could just hang around my place doing very little.  No such luxury for Orca.  Wouldn’t it be great if Orcas (and all wild animals) were allowed to be free?  Check out Heather Moore’s take on it in her blog, Orca attack shouldn’t come as any surprise.
