Anyone watching Blackfish on CNN?

Or seen it previously? What are your views on things like zoos or aquariums?


I personally feel that they should be outlawed. I just don't think it is ethically right to confine an animal (or fish) to something that would essentially be like us being put into a jail cell.

I got depressed listening to the sad sounds those Orcas were making. :(

Not all zoos and aquariums are terrible places. Many of them are playing a critical role in breeding and keeping endangered species alive in addition to their educational merits.

Yes, many of them are terrible, and I have no doubt that there's plenty for CNN to focus on, but don't latch onto those examples and start hating on all zoos.

I guess I should say thought that there is definitely a difference between wildlife conservation and profiteering. I know many zoos do engage in some form of conservation, but the stuff Seaworld does with having the animals do tricks? Nah. That isn't conservation.

Pet shops and pet farms are worse.

I agree with this.

I'm cringing at the damage these trainers are receiving from the Orcas.

Are you guys watching the CNN debate on the film? The guy in the cowboy hat is so obnoxious.

I don't know.


Also, the joke is that whales aren't even fish.
