Millions go to SeaWorld to learn more about sea life and get closer to killer whales. But fewer go now because the documentary “Blackfish” exposed what one reporter called “the darker side” of SeaWorld.
The movie, which CNN bought and ran over and over, tells how greedy businessmen take baby whales from their mothers and imprison them in small aquariums, where the frustrated animals are a threat to each other and their trainers.
“All whales in captivity have a bad life,” says a biologist in the film. “They’re all psychologically traumatized.”
“Blackfish” is persuasive. Watching it made me agree with the protesters who shout, “SeaWorld is synonymous with cruelty!”
SeaWorld wouldn’t talk to CNN, but they did talk to me. I will be showing their responses on Fox News this weekend.
I asked SeaWorld why they separate whales from their mothers.
