Cause of the day - Appreciate animals in the wild, not in captivity

Ref - SeaWorld trainer Dawn Brancheau was killed by a killer whale.

Killer whales, like all wild animals have complex behavioural, physical and social needs, which can never be fully satisfied in captivity.

What we typically have are animal shows where intelligent and sensitive animals are made to perform circus tricks.

Such shows serve no purpose other than to entertain spectators and to assert man's purported dominance over other living beings. Stop supporting animal shows!
