We mourn a trainer from an Orca at Sea World,,, but here is a feel good story.

While an Orca sadly killed a trainer at Sea World Orlando, and alot of animal rights groups scream the horror of puting animals in captivity, Six Flags Discovery Kingdom is taking in a sea lion who got shot in the face by an angry fisherman., and cannot be released back into the wild due to his injuries.

I applaud Six Flags.

Sea World San Diego just rehabilitated two sea turtles with hypothermia (the rode up to Oregon in a bubble of El Nino Warm water that eventually cooled). They take in injured marine animals from San Diego all the time. They also rehabilitate injured Manatees.

Oh my God, kpjb. I was going to post that exact same reply last night, but second guessed myself. lol

Janfredrick, thank goodness we have the Manatees. They write episodes of Family Guy for us to enjoy.

What these animal rights groups don't realize is once these animals are born into captivity, they would NOT make it on their own if released into the wild. They would be too vulnerable.

I also applaud these parks for taking in injured animals and nursing them back to health. A lot of zoos do this as well. That always puts a smile on my face. :)
