The recent attack by a captive orca on its trainer at a SeaWorld facility in Orlando, Florida has again raised questions about our relationship with these top predators.
No-one knows what triggered the latest incident, but many pseudo-scientists are creating plans to find new careers for these whales.
But it does highlight the tensions that occur when we choose to interact closely with huge marine predators.
It is also debatable what to do with those orcas that remain in captivity, as they can’t easily return to the wild.
“They are highly intelligent animals, so we are putting job applications out on behalf of the animals,” says Dr Star Joy, an animal expert from “Free our Friends.”
“Recent attempts to release orcas just haven’t worked,” says Manny Grovers, of the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society (WDCS). ”We had one whale start a job in Vegas. He was a dealer. However, he couldn’t even use the shuffle machine, and he never let people double down. That is contrary to the table rules!”
Check back with the Syndicate as we find more about these attempts to release orcas.
