There has been some former employees of Marineland who have come forward to tell people of how some of the animals there have been treated. There have been pictures taken of seals with badly reddened eyes, walrus with scars and rashes on their bodies and a baby buluga whale being attacked and killed by two adult bulugas (see below).
Do we really need places like this where dolphins, whales , seals and walrus are kept in small aquariums for our amusement ? Do we need zoos where the animals are held in cages or small enclosures where they have no real freedom ? Do we really need to go to circuses where the animals are bullied into performing for we humans ?
About the only place up here I can say is even close to natural is African Wild Safari. But still the animals don't have real freedom. So why do we need these places ? With the internet nowadays we can view them in their natural state. Some may say it is because the children need to see and learn. Again this can be done via the internet (like almost everything else can be done via the internet).
I would like to hear some opinions on my questions if you would. And thank you.http://www.thestar.com/news/canada/arti ... as-answers
