Thursday Thinking and Inking - Whale
All Aboard the Meme Express – Thursday, February 25, 2010
Yesterday, a tragic event occurred at Sea World Orlando. A giant killer whale slew his trainer, Dawn Brancheau, as the audience at Shamu Stadium watched. Apparently, the orca had been linked to previous human deaths as well.
Here’s the story:
A killer whale killed a female marine animal trainer in the Sea World Orlando Shamu Stadium. The tragedy occurred before a live audience during the Shamu Show at the Florida theme park. The 12,300-pound orca has been connected to previous human deaths.
What do you think about that? How do you feel about humans interacting with killer whales? What's your take on marine shows - and about wild animals training in captivity?
Here’s an anonymous quotation for Thursday Thinking and Inking at Meme Express.
“Consider the whale:
It never gets into trouble
until it comes up and starts spouting.”
Each Thursday, we offer feature a quotation as inspiration for that day’s prompt.
