YES,I finally got to watch this last night and I didn't think I would make it past the first 15 minutes. I did watch all and I have even more appreciation for whales/Orcas and ALL animals/creatures in this world. NONE should ever be in captivity!!!! NEVER!!

Everyone should watch this. It was released on CNN October 18th 2013. I waited for this quite awhile and IT had so much of the truth . The trainers and most involved except the business end all had regrets ,were very said and it definitely affected all of their lives to this day.

I posted this in my comments area in case people saw last night ,that it was on 7-9PM Eastern time. It is on again.It is a CNN Movie so I'm sure it will be shown on CNN. I would think eventually you can find the Documnetary in a few other places but you must try to watch. It started out very hard to take and it all was but if I made it through , so can almost anyone. Believe me.I avoid a lot of regualr movies due to one scene in it related to an animal. PLEASE SIGN !! PLEASE TRY TO WATCH IT...
TY Cher for posting..

One can only hope that this is the very wide eye opener everyone was waiting for and would be that once and for all this could be over one day. Bath tubs are for humans, not whales nor dolphins for that matter.

Current CNN poll shows that 10% still would like to see them in captivity, probably for their own selfish reasons and not accounting for the animals pain and suffering. I hope they too will come to their senses and accept the truth as shown in this movie. There is simply no denial, even the blind could see that.

Be not be persuaded by the trainers and such as there most definitely is no lesson to be learned here, these animals do not behave like this in the wild, never did and never will. These shows tell us nothing, not in the least bit other then tricks and treats at their expense, for life. Don't be fooled either when they say that they do not need wild orca's anymore due to captive breeding, that also makes no difference, the suffering is exactly the same or worse once they remove the offspring from the mother so nobody should be smiling here, crying would be more justified.

Please stop patronizing these cruel establishments and the problem will take care of itself, in time but not soon enough.

I didn't and couldn't watch it, I knew too much already and just didn't want to see the horrible things that are done and I don't mean to the trainers. If they would leave these majestic mammals alone, none of the injuries would happen in the first place. I boycott all places that have animal performers, period!
