It’s another installment of ALDF’s 30 Second Animal Law! This time they’ve got David Kirby, author of Death at Seaworld: Shamu and the Dark Side of Killer Whales in Captivity, talking about how fucked up it is to keep killer whales in captivity. “Really incredibly fucked up and dangerous” is the answer. Just horrible.
Screenings of the documentary Blackfish, all about the violent, tragic life of poor Tilikum, especially focusing on the death of trainer Dawn Brancheau thre years ago, begin this month in the U.K. and in July in the U.S. Since there’s nothing we vegans love more than a scary and upsetting documentary about the ways humans mistreat animals, we suggest you take all your friends to see it as a summer treat. Stock up on ice cream and booze later to console them after all the rage-crying the film is sure to cause. Just watch the trailer!
