I found this video depressing and sad. The film footage of the whales being killed was horrible. I feel sorry for all the Orcas who have been subjected to "performing" in captivity. Poor Moby Doll, who turned out to be Moby Dick. I'm sure his immune system was compromised by his terrible wound. This video simply reveals our shame and shows us for what we really are...savages.

Humans cause all kinds of problems for all wildlife and sea life. Humans are killing all the animals one species at a time.

Wow - I wish I could read something positive about Canadians.... This is a horrible video - but unfortunately, true. It really takes Canadians a long time to catch on to anything. It's no wonder that GreenPeace was started in Vancouver.

They have NOT 'learned from their mistakes' and a vast number of people in BC have a strange attitude towards wildlife. They seem to be in a rush to wipe out all wildlife on land and in the sea - even birds irritate some people I've spoken to. Fortunately, not all
