Tillie Back Performing?!?!
Is it only me, or are others shocked that they put this animal back into public performances? He has killed THREE people. What more does he have to do to tell the people around him that he is not happy with his life?
Sea World says it is because he needs the enrichment to his environment. True, he needs that. But THEY took him on as a money-making side show. If he can't do that job any longer, they owe it to him to meet his needs off-exhibit, in a less stressful environment, or to humanely destroy him.
Sea World is all about making money... nothing more than an amusement theme park, IMO. If they can do that while treating their animals humanely, I have no objection. In this case, they are not living up to that minimal level of responsibility.
How long do they need to torture this animal and how many people have to die before they learn their lesson? We've been talking about the guy who "shamed" his dog on You Tube. In his case, he's just some stupid shmuck at home with his dog and a video camera. The trainers at Sea World are SUPPOSED to be professional trainers. Shame on them.
I'm totally disgusted.
