Well, Cher-there's not really too much difference..according to story..
" Its a gut feeling based on 54 years of being around captures and seeing how many do not survive their experience, especially one that young who was taken away from its mother.
Beyond heartbreaking!! Let's just hope and pray Angel will be spared that fate..

(on a side note, with the help of this PHOTO I WAS FINALLY -AFTER 4 Yrs almost- able to identify that avatar Agnes H has! :) what a surprise.)

I have actually avoided reading about this dolphin as I fear for what may happen. The Japanese obviously don;t give a damn about her or any other they catch.

The idea of this continuing off the coast of Japan is truly sad. The Japanese are truly "losing face" in the eyes of the world.

This is why I hate people. The greed of these Japanese pigs is pathetic and I hope karma takes them out in a painful way. I guess they learned nothing from their earthquake.

I wish that the admiration for the extraordinary were expressed in a completely different way! Like this, they will only try to cash in on it more, and a lot of filthy lucre is guaranteed once greed has overtaken principles! Poor little baby-girl who should be playing with her mother in the waves now founds herself deprived of her free and happy life -- how sad is that! And it should not be so, her appearance notwithstanding.

A Taiji-caught dolphin can fetch more than $150,000, but we wont know Angels actual monetary value until the bidding process begins. She is being held in a small tank at the Taiji Whale Museum, OBarry says, and it is conceivable the museum could keep her as part of its collection.

Then again, she may not live long enough to bring in crowds. Very heartbreaking for this cute dolphin, Angel.
Thanks for sharing Cher.
