Orcas, Bears and Chimpaneses
Just a quick thought. There are some animals that are too intelligent and too dangerous to be trained for the entertainment of the masses, no matter how much money you can make doing it. The Sea World owners claim they do it for "educational purposes". Well, so far we have learned that if a whale gets too bored or abused, it will kill us. I've heard the argument that they cannot release orcas because they'll probably die in the wild. So? The issue really is that this is a $2,000,000 stud fish (yeah I know - cetacea), which is helping creating more and more captive killer whales to make more money, not educate anybody..
