Blackfish Documentary

Anyone else see the #Blackfish documentary on CNN? I was looking forward to it for a while because I saw the trailer on YouTube, but it was initially only released in a few theaters for a limited release.

It’s basically about all the whales at Sea World and the history of them attacking trainers over the last 40 years or so, and it blames most of the behavior on how they are kept and treated. Was really eye opening because I remember going to Sea World as a little kid and having the time of my life, but you couldn’t pay me to go there now.

There is a male whale named Tilikium that has killed a few trainers and is the biological father to over half the other whales at sea world. If you had a dog that was aggressive, it would never be the dog you would use for breeding, but that is what has happened. Whole thing is nuts and I can’t recommend it enough.

If you have seen it, what did you think? If you haven’t, make it a priority to watch it. Tweet at me and let me know.
