Top Ten Reasons to Shut Down Sea World

ToptenPizza
Sea world is cruelity, captivity, and abuse. It is stolen freedom from animals, and orca prison. It is lies to the public, and the equivilant to living in the bathtub.
Don't buy a ticket. Don't attend this. Stand with me, and #emptythetanks (go to emptythetanks.com to see a protest near you :))
Here are the top tens, because there are thousands of reasons against it.

The Top Ten

1 A Tank Can't Replace the Ocean

I agree I been to Sea World before in and loved the flamingos, the birds, the whales, the dolphins, and some roller coasters but a few months later I watched a documentary on the killer whales the name was "Black fish" I was astonished how they treated the killer whales in such small tanks I thought they had a small tank for show time and a bigger one to live in so later I did some research on Sea World and how they treat they're animals then my chin went down and I never came to Sea World again

Yes, a life safe from a danger where you are given everything you need is nice. But what is all that worth if that life is kept crammed in a small tank, sapped of all spirit and dulled to numbness? - ShuhBanggg

Beautiful but when you think twice. You feel bad for the animals. If sea world be making millions of dollars ever summer. Its Impossible to close down. The owners won't care about the animals.

Are you kidding me? If I were to live in a bathtub I would maybe die from being stiff for so long!

2 It Isn't Safe for the Public

No matter how much you train these creatures, they are wild animals. We don't speak orca, and they are under a lot of pressure performing. There were many incidents where people died. - ToptenPizza

And then those idiots decide it's the fault of the ANIMALS and kill them! What the heck? THere's this hotel you should give a thumbs up to, the lion cage is so big you can't see all of it, plus the trainers are actually trained and not idiots waitig to get killed

Blackfish tells it all. Watch it, it's a must-see. - keycha1n

They are trained animals,they do not attack unless they feel threatened - Nateawesomeness

3 Sea World Breaks the Animal Welfare Act

In January, the USDA found vetenary tools in disrepair. This isn't the first time. They were also cited in 2007, 2014 and 2012. - ToptenPizza

Star vs the forces of evil does it more

4 They Separate Calves from Their Mothers

This happens in factory farms literally everywhere. They separate calves and their mothers to get the dairy and then kill the calf. Either by shooting it or beating it to death. And that's basically where all your dairy and meat comes from unless you specifically go to a local farm to get it. I don't like going all "animals rights activist" because its wildly rude to comment on others lifestyles, but this is so inhumane, might want to stop eating them and paying them to continue. - keycha1n

Have you guys seen blackfish? They show a video of it. And this isn't even the only time. Sure, seaworld says blackfish is a lie, but SEAWORLD is saying it. Does sea world sound like a reliable source? - ToptenPizza

Well they free the animals... - Nateawesomeness

Ok ill vote fer this if yeh wnt

5 Sea World Breeds With No Regard to the Animal's Health

Orcas breed at 15 in the wild. At sea world, they breed at 8 or 9. They also continuously breed, and many of the orcas breeding are closely related. This means the orcas are inbreds, and will struggle with health. So nope, they don't take orcas from the ocean, they inbred them into a prison in eich they will have bad health in. - ToptenPizza

They only breed when the orca feels like it's ready - Nateawesomeness

Seaworld is like a deathcamp for orcas.

6 They Drug Their Whales

Do healthy animals in the wild need drugs? Nope. Do animals in sea world need them? Yes. They give them phsycoactive drugs. They show troubling behaviours that would need these drugs, but it says a lot they would need these. - ToptenPizza

What makes them think that druging the animals will stop them from killing people they are beasts of the wild

The 'fish' they give the orcas are actually dead bits of frozen food filled with anti-stress and drug medication. They no doubt drug the whales. By keeping them in captivity the whale would need to do 13000 laps of the pool a DAY to have the equivalent exercise as in the wild. Since they are so stressed all they do is Lye around in the pool all day and this causes an energy build-up, the end result is being aggressive. Whales and dolphins are very timid creatures, stress causes death and that's why they die so young.

What's the answer? SHUT DOWN SEAWORLD! πŸ’™πŸ¬πŸ³πŸ πŸ‹πŸŸ

7 They Stole Baby Emperor Penguins

In 2011, they stole baby penguins for their exhibit. Emporer penguins are known for being dedicated caretakers, and this probably broke the poor things heart. This is recent too! - ToptenPizza

That's awful! They should take them back! - TwilightKitsune

That's just low. - 906389

Wow- what a bunch of asswipes. - Pony

8 The Way It Started

I frankly don't care how the orcas are breeded into a bathtub prison forced to perform while dealing with health issues, it started out much darker. Tilikum was ripped from his family against his will and confined to a concrete tank. When Shamu was captured, HER MOTHER WAS SHOT WITH A HARPOON RIGHT BEFORE HIS EYES! That's like going to a 5 year old, taking out a gun, and shooting her mother right in front of her. Orcas have feelings, and that orca just had to watch his mom die. They continued slaughtering orcas, even putting rocks in their stomach making them sink to the ground so their death wouldn't be discovered. Does this sound like caring to you? - ToptenPizza

I don't only want SeaWorld to be shut down, but I also want all the animals to be let free. After they free the animals, the place gets destroyed, and anybody who worked there goes to prison for life. - RalphBob

Why would anyone be that crule they should shut sea world down

If you haven't already please go to YouTube and watch orcas and dolphins being captured. It will break your heart but you will realise just how evil places like this are.
SHUT DOWN SEAWORLDπŸŸπŸ πŸ³πŸ¬πŸ™

9 They Will Stop Orca Shows In 2016

I don't want to stop the shows I want every animal free because it is not right for them to be in captivity

They should not even have orcas there its not heathly for them

Yes

10 In Sea World, They Live Shorter Lives

In the wild, orcas can live up to 60-70 years. Long, happy healthy life in freedom. In sea world, the median is 9 years. Short, depressing, unhealthy life in a prison. Says a lot, right? - ToptenPizza

I've heard of these belugas dying after birth. Matches this.

Tikkum lived for 32 years but I see your point

The last orca born at Sea World, in San Antonio, has died after birth.
Sea World is seriously evil, they should shut it down.

The Contenders

11 The Collapsed Dorsal Fins

Orcas in the wild rarely have collapsed fins. Only 1%, actually. You see, this is much more common for orcas in captivity to have such fins, because they are unhealthy. Trainors at sea world are not trained marine biologists. - ToptenPizza

No

12 Seaworld Only Gives the Animals Food If They Do the Tricks Right.

This is crazy!

How else would they get wild animals to perform.

This is insane! Pricks. - Ralph the Pizza

If I could do some thing I would close down sea world

13 The Rides Suck

Really? All the abusing and all you can say is that the RIDES suck?

Really? I really don't like Seaworld and will never give them business again, but I had mighty fun in the Manta ride. - keycha1n

Honestly I love sea world. It made me have the dream of wanting to become a marine biologist when I was younger and I have so many childhood memories there by looking at the beautiful animals there that I otherwise wouldn't have gotten the opportunity to see. With a lot ofthe logic you used in this list I believe you don't want zoos either. And are probably vegetarian or vegan. I'm not trying to bring hate I'm just stating my honest opinion as you are. - happyhappyjoyjoy

Just look what they did to Atlantis
They took away the scary elements, and made it boring.

14 The People That Own It Only Care About Money

Hello?!? Duhhh have you seen the cages. Animals try to kill themselves in order to escape such cruelty. SEAWORLD have been told there is a sanctuary ready to give the poor orcas and dolphins some peace and happiness for the rest of their lives. It's a part of the ocean sectioned off and about 50 times bigger than the cages at the moment. There they would be able to hunt live fish, communicate with any family members, feel the currents of the waves, and actually be able to properly swim and dive like their bodies are built for. Sounds great right? Well not to Seaworld. They're making millions from these darling creatures and regardless of what the say about 'family' they couldn't care less as long as they're making money.
Sorry that was really long but it annoys me so much. I think there is a petition online to rehabilitate captured animals into the sanctuary please fill it out to give the poor animals a chance of happiness. I for one think they deserve it after decades of torture.

15 They lie to the public

I know they lie, but what do they lie about?

16 The Whales and Penguins Are Treated Unnaturally

And dolphins. Yes or course they are. They're fed anti depressants to attempt to make them not suisidal. Seriously now look up Lolita the orcas tank then orcas in the wild and play a little game of spot the difference. by the way you will be there for years.

pricks

17 Their Whales Become Aggressive Because of Captivity

In the wild there isn't a single reported killing of humans from orcas or dolphins however many from captivity. I rest my case

18 They Try to Make the Animals Seem Bad

One time, an orca killed a person who worked there, and then everybody started going crazy about it. Well guess what? If I was that whale, I would kill people that were abusing me too. Thanks for this list. - RalphBob

19 They're Bad Caretakers

The trainers have no marine biology educational background they're simply performers.

The animals don't get fed if they don't perform good enough

20 Animals are Taken from Their Life and Family

i agree

-In the wild, orcas are very social
-In Seaworld they are put in their tanks by themselves which causes depression
