New picture of Kasatka rotting to death in an overcrowded, chlorinated swimming pool at Sea World San Diego. This poor soul is undoubtably in a lot of pain.
Sh...e "looks like" or appears to be in the final stages of AIDS. And no doubt when she finally does die under their so-called "world-class care" at SeaWorld, they will claim pneumonia, or bacterial septicemia killed her - just as they call every other death there.
Not one of their Killer Whales has ever died of old age. They all die because #CaptivityKills.
In case you missed it; here is the informative and poignant blog by Voice of the Orcas - former SW trainers, Dr. Jeffrey Ventre and Samantha Berg, both featured in Blackfish: http://voiceoftheorcas.blogspot.com/…/kasatkas-impending-de…

(*EDIT Note: She does not have AIDS! Kasatka has been fighting a fugal infection for many years and it has become worse over the past few months. SeaWorld has been asked many times by PhD Marine Biologists, to share her bloodwork and make public the disease or infection she has. But they will not, which is no surprise, because they never tell the truth about what's really going on there. Posted this edit due to a large amount of what turned out to be supporters of cruelty, zoos and captive facilities (who were commenting endlessly) and arguing about the comment. The same thing has been said by other medical doctors, saying it appears, or looks like the end stages of AIDS. It was a reference to what her skin looks like. None of us mean any harm in that comment. Many apologies for that and any confusion.)
Friends and Fans of SeaWorld, We are extremely saddened to announce the passing of Kyara, our newest killer whale calf. Kyara was being treated for an infection... & cared for at the park’s Animal Hospital surrounded by a team of dedicated staff members. Despite the teams best efforts Kyara passed earlier today, surrounded by lots of love. For more information, please visit: https://seaworldcares.com/kyara-update.
Meet Glen Venezio, Puerto Rico's "Catman". Glen feeds and takes care of over 250 cats, and some dogs, in his neighborhood in San Juan, Puerto Rico; with minimal... donations. Watch his inspiring story. -------- MORE INFO:
Glen Venezio, originally from New Jersey and New York City (USA), has been living in San Juan, Puerto Rico since 2006. Shortly after his arrival there, he began doing his part to aid some of the estimated 1 million cats and dogs on the streets and beaches of the island. He does a nightly feeding route for about 250 cats and some dogs, in a spirit of total sacrifice for these animals who have nothing and no one, never having missed one single night in 10 years. He has also been working to spay/neuter the animals, in addition to aiding the police with cruelty cases, and various animal activist efforts, including staging successful battles against a planned monkey breeding farm (which would have imported and bred macaques for cruel experimentation), and a planned dolphinarium. It is an uphill battle in Puerto Rico, where there is constant abandonment, many extreme cases of animal cruelty, and widespread indifference by the government and population to the situation. Glen can not continue to do this work without the kind help of others.......... If you would like to help Glen by donating to his efforts, please contact him via Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/glenPR or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org .

Obviously, we have to keep the strong message of wildlife care and compassion going. This is unacceptable. http://wsvn.com/…/baby-dolphin-dies-after-beachgoers-pull-…/

Este vídeo nos ha roto el corazón.
Una periodista pudo grabar en Japón, entre lágrimas, cómo la madre de una cría de delfín peleó, sin éxito, por evitar que ci...nco hombres la separaran de su hijo para llevarlo a un delfinario. El intento rabioso de la madre por impedir que se llevaran a su bebé, golpea nuestra conciencia.
Los delfinarios y zoológicos son cárceles de esclavos, que viven nadando en círculos en una piscina, dejándose morir de tristeza. No contribuyas a este negocio. ¡Ponte del lado de los animales!
Kidnapped at the age of two. Lived as a slave his entire life. Exploited for profit and sperm. Forced to perform degrading circus tricks for food. $hame on $...ea World. Shame on the humans. RIP Tilikum your life and death will be the leading factor in closing places that use animals for entertainment.
