dancing killer whales

most of us would not go to see a dancing bear -we would think of this 'circus' act as unethical and barbaric. yet we gladly support Sea World and other similar water parks who train their aquatic mammals to dance for spectators. why are these dancing mammals any different than the ones with fur?

If you haven't already watch 'The Cove.' It covers the history of dolphin training. The bloke who trained Flipper now understands the horror of what he helepd establish (ie trainign dolphins) and is commited to liberating dolphins from captivity and ending the dolphin meat trade.

I totally agree. Let them be wild and free! I cannot stand Seaworld, Disneyland and zoo type of places.
