Orcas are Dangerous
Why?
Wild animals
How they got to SeaWorld
Where they stay
How they are trained
Killings are not accidents
The trainers have no background in biology
SeaWorld has records of over 100 incidents in which orcas acted out aggressively towards humans
Brags about whales being over the age of 30 and one almost 50
Facts:
There is a whale that lives in the wild that is 103 years old.
Breeding
In the wild, orcas choose there own mates
At SeaWorld, male orcas are masturbated to collect sperm and females are artificially inseminated
Bred too early in SeaWorld
