I have long thought that mistreating animals in captivity is no different to mistreating people in captivity. It is one of the reasons I wouldn’t want to keep a budgie in prison. A while ago someone told me about a documentary called Blackfish exposing the way orcas are treated. Well, it has just been announced that Sea World are to stop keeping orcas until they can exhibit them in more natural surroundings.
I’d just like to take this chance to congratulate and thank all of you who campaigned against mistreatment of these animals. Humanity isn’t just about caring for humans.
