The kidnapped orcas of SeaWorld
I haven’t the slightest idea as to how i messed up a few parents names, I am only human. Here is the fixed version, along with the notes.
On that note, here are a few notes i’ve attached to be read with the video.
Malia, Malia was separated from her mother for a sort period of time, It was speculated due to bruising that her mother Taima was injuring her. Malia was also a trouble maker during shows. She was placed with the other ‘kids’ then later reintroduced back with her mother. Taima died at the age of 20, her daughter Malia was only 3. Malia was included because in the end, this was SeaWorlds fault Malia will forever be separated from her mother. In the wild, “beating” on a calf by its own mother is a very rare if not never heard of behavior.
Orkid is a similar case to Malia. Orkid’s mother was killed by Corky. The aggressive stress between Kandu V and Corky was caused by captivity. This stress could of been a language barrier lcelandic vs Northern resident, a common issue with captivity. These two pods in the wild would never of met each other, nor understand each other. In the wild, orcas do not fight each other ( Their social rules prohibit violence towards each other, and when it does occur there is space to flee ). This forever separation is once again, Seaworlds fault.
Sumar’s mother was very aggressive from the beginning and was slowly but daily separated from his mother. At the age of 10 months the separation was permanent.
