pull your pants up!
this is actually about something sad.
well to me anyway.
so it use to baffle me that animals,
our smaller and wetter kind,
actually tried to commit suicide.
that is until a squirrel ran in front the road,
saw my car coming at the time,
and didn’t budge.
it was almost like “take me out my misery”.
i’m sure it gave me the middle paw once i didn’t hit it.
well that’s kinda what happened at sea world the other day.
an orca named “morgan” wanted to set free her own willy.
peep this video and article via the ny daily news…
SeaWorld is again drawing the ire of animal rights activists after a video emerged showing one of their killer whales beaching itself during a show at a zoo in the Canary Islands.
Activists said Morgan the whale was trying to commit suicide, while a statement from the Loro Parque zoo, which has the marine mammal on loan from SeaWorld, said she was exhibiting “natural behavior.”
“To speculate that this represents a sign of stress demonstrates utter ignorance about the natural behavior of this species,” the statement read.
Orcas are known to occasionally beach themselves while hunting but can crush their own internal organs if they stay on land for too long.
The video was posted by a non-profit animal rights group called Ric O’Barry’s Dolphin Project last week and quickly prompted social media backlash under the hashtag #FreeMorgan.
The Dolphin Project also issued a statement that said: “This is one of many examples of what is wrong with captivity. One would never see this bizarre behavior in nature.”
SeaWorld, which said that they would begin phasing out their orca whale shows earlier this year after widespread criticism, told Fox News that the animal was not acting irregularly.
“There are no concerns with Morgan sliding out as shown in the video as whales do this with some regularity,” SeaWorld told the network in a statement.
This isn’t the first time Morgan’s behavior has come to the attention of activists.
In April, the killer whale was videotaped repeatedly smashing her head into a metal grate inside a Loro Parque medical pool.
According to the Free Morgan Foundation, the whale was captured in the waters near the Netherlands in 2010 and has been in captivity ever since.
it’s almost similar to how i feel every day going to that job of mine.
that is depressing.
at one point in the video,
morgan looked like she just gave up on life.
i feel like putting animals in cages for “show” is disgusting.
these animals should be roaming free in their own habitats.
they shouldn’t be treated like “exhibits” for our amusement.
just my thought.
the sad part with most of these captured animals is,
once they are let free into the wild,
most are killed by other animals very quickly.
thank you to the f-bi who sent me this story.
i know this sounds crazy,
but i hope morgan can find some peace somehow.
lowkey: this is the makings for a disney movie.
only thing is the ocra goes “bat shit” and eats it’s trainers.
am i the only one who can tell when an animal is sad?
those horses in central park<<<<<
they often look like they’re in tears when i walk past them.
even when i went to the circus,
i could tell the elephants were depressed.
