This former trainer exposes the dark side of orca shows

"This is not a killer whale, this is a killer whale that is dying right in front of your eyes" He used to be a trainer at SeaWorld in California. Now, John Hargrove is leading campaigns with One Voice against theme parks exhibiting captive killer whales. This is what he has to say about them.

    no animal ever should be housed for entertainment. our sea mammals especially deserve better from us all.

    We've known about this horrific treatment for a long time this should not happen any more let these poor whales go they say they wouldn't make it in the wild but I'm sure they'd rather die in the ocean then in a f****** Fishbowl full of chlorine. Give them that last dignity it's the least we could do.!

    Can't we replace the Whales with Simon Cowell and Amanda Holden?

    I refuse to go to any theme parks that have captive whales or dolphins! If people stop believing the lies they're fed & stop going to these places, the demand for this sort of "entertainment" will dry up, along with the money or profits 🤔🐬🐋😭
