I totally agree with you Connie. Very well said. ^ +1There is probably no hope for animals like this whale that has been in captivity for so long. They sadly now probably wouldn't be able to survive in the wild on their own, they are use to performing, etc. for their food. If they are just thrown out there who knows, it's like a home school kid being thrown into a hard core high school.
I believe in rehabilitating whales or taking care of sick whales in captivity if needed, re-release them if they get better, but I hate that they are used for entertainment reasons.
