Killer whales kill. Shhhh! Don’t tell anybody!  »

Adrants, a gossipy advertising blog, is criticizing the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA), claiming their timing is poor for a campaign against SeaWorld:

In a morbid bid to capitalize on the SeaWorld tragedy, the World Society for Protection of Animals has hired Work Club to create a new campaign to dissuade British tourists from patronizing “cruel” attractions while on vacation. In other words, don’t go to SeaWorld.

I can’t tell, are those condescending quotation marks on “cruel” or not? I’m going to err on the side of condescending because, well, they are kind of dicks. Now to be fair, like I said, they are just criticizing the timing of such a campaign, not the message—“cruel” aside, they remain neutral on that. But that seems like the opposite of logic to me. This is perfect timing, considering the tragedy is not at all an isolated incident. The WSPA claims that this specific whale contributed to two other human deaths. And forget this whale, the BBC gives us a laundry list of carnage caused by other killer whales. Also, it’s not just that this has happened before, there are factors that lead to the incident such as inadequate confinement and generally poor conditions. SeaWorld is not going to tell the public about this, so the WSPA has to. That’s fucked up in its own right.

“ Or, you know, maybe don’t enslave your fellow intelligent mammal species, as a start, and then just blow up all the motherfucking “Sea Worlds” and any zoo that isn’t run like the San Diego Wild Animal Park—thousands of acres where the creatures can roam free and hump in the sun, etc. „

Wonkette, which I adore, wanted to let you all know that some crazies at a website called Rightly Concerned posted something really gross last week titled “Bible ignored, trainer dies" that says that if Sea World Orlando officials had been reading the Old Testament, they’d have known that disobedient animals "shall be stoned," just like naughty oxen, so get on that already and kill it, KILL IT NOW BEFORE IT KILLS AGAIN DEMON SPAWN OF THE SEA.
