I remember going to SeaWorld in San Antonio when I was very young - being splashed was the best part of the show. Blackfish shows that no matter how fond those memories, they were perpetuated by a coverup - one that led to many injuries and even deaths - and, as far as animal abuse goes, is on par with the cruelty of traveling circuses were in the early 20th century. I'm glad SeaWorld is feeling the repercussions of their actions and I hope more people continue to watch this documentary and act accordingly. I'm not an activist by any means - but what SeaWorld has done is unconscionable.

Blackfish

Blackfish is an insightful, heartbreaking, and shocking documentary which ranks as one of the very best of the year. Some may find it to be entirely one-sided, but how could it not be? SeaWorld execs refused to take part in defending themselves or having interviews done. Plus with all the lies they perpetuated, now exposed through talking heads from past employees and trainers, among other people connected to the capturing of whales for the shows, it wouldn't matter either way. Everyone should watch this, and no one should ever pay to go to SeaWorld again. Or any amusement park with trapped whales for that matter. Fortunately I've never been, but if I did go it would be to stand out front of the park to protest. Ultimately, though, Blackfish is an insightful, and again, heartbre...
