    Protests surface after high-profile aquarium deaths

    http://www.ajc.com/living/content/li...vaquarium.html

    Putting large ocean mammals in a big fish tank/aquarium is cruel treatment and similar to sentencing a harmless creature to solitary confinement for life.
    Since Vets haven't determined the cause of death, both could have died from broken hearts.

    Whales should only be put in tanks if they're found to be terrorists, after a fair trial with legal representation.

    you know.. something interesting when I used to work with horses...

    the work horses that were always paired up to pull like the clydesdales for example.... you cant separate the pair...

    when that happend due to one dying ect... the other fell ill very shortly after for no apparent reason and would die.

    sorry.. just a moment from my brain memory that i found interesting lol...

    as far as any animal in a tank ect... some are there because they were saved and cannot be released ect... same with like a bird sanctuary... or the manatee rescue organizations...

    some serve a very good purpose and others may be just to exploit...

    however... I remember a photo I once saw of the PETA people... how they dont believe in any confinement of dogs ect... and in their OWN group photo it shows a bunch of them with dogs on harness'...

    eh.. whatever.

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion

    Good points, Goz. Not only the injured ones, but some were born in captivity and can't survive in the wild. It'd be like taking a pampered city guy and dumping him in the woods. Sure, there's food, but how do you know what's safe to eat, much less catch it?
