Former SeaWorld trainer says Blackfish film was "180" from what was presented to her

Posted | Contributed by Jeff

Bridgette Pirtle, who contributed footage to the film Blackfish, tells fan site MiceChat that the film lacks context and has an agenda. The former trainer said:

It seemed to me, with the information that was given at the time, that maybe there was someone capable of telling Dawn’s story and defending her in a compassionate and respectful manner.

Blackfish was a complete ‘180’ from what was originally presented to me. Now, it’s almost like my worst fears are unfolding in front of me. When I first spoke with Tim and Gabriela, I truly felt like they were as passionate about the animals’ welfare as I was. I felt they believed in the relationships and respected my experiences and insight.
