Justice was served here. Orcas are wild regardless if they are put in aquariums. Thanks for sharing.

*You cannot currently send a star to Yrna because you have done so within the last week.*

I cheered aloud when I heard this on the news last night. Still, $75,000.00 fine is a drop in the (aqua prison) bucket for Sea World. They will carry on with business as usual.
The only thing that will change this cruelty is EMPTY SEATS. (Sorry for being so repetitious, but I won't stop until they do.)

I agree Eileen.
Unfortunately Sea World will continue on with the shows as do many Zoos. Best thing is not to support them or zoos at all.

One step closer, perhaps, to closing SeaWorld down.

I could have told them sea world was at fault,,
Common sense could have prevented a lot of pain.
These are wild animals and you don't cage them.
Did I mention these are intelligent wild animals?

Some good links to show who really is the king of the ocean.
Size plus intelligence = killer whales.
