Last night on CNN they aired a documentary called "Blackfish." On this Oct. 24 show, viewers were shocked to hear the things that Sea World used to do years ago to get their whales. One of them who used to do this for a living revealed what went on.
He revealed that they would go out in ships into the ocean and find the whales. Once they found them, the whales would basically run from them and they would corner them. He said that they would find the babies and these were the ones he would take into Sea World.
This man revealed that you would see the rest of the family communicating with them. It was very obvious they were upset and he said it felt like kidnapping a baby, but once they were out there doing it he kept on going. The other thing that was shocking was he stated that three whales died during their trying to pick up the baby whale. They would simply cut open their tales, fill it up with rocks, and then sink the bodies of the whales. He never thought before about this being illegal, but obviously it was not something legal they were doing. Hopefully they have now changed their ways of getting whales.
