I love animals. They're cute and majestic and they taste good too. What's not to love? One thing I don't love is that they don't have equal rights...
Ya know, it just isn't fair that women get to vote but animals don't. I want equal rights for animals! ...OK, no. I can't even pretend to be a PETA idiot.
Sooo Peta is suing SeaWorld because they are "enslaving" killer whales. Their argument is that they are taking these whales from their families at a young age, holding them against their will, and forcing them to perform tricks. So does this mean I am enslaving my dogs? They were all adopted as puppies, I make them wear leashes so they cannot escape me, and I also make them do tricks.
If you've ever been here before, you might have seen my last blog about PETA, and you'd know how much I hate them. Straight ridiculousness. The animals over at Seaworld are living better lives than I am, and not only that, SeaWorld has rehabilitated and rescued over 20,000 animals since their beginning. Sure, they train these animals to person tricks... but they aren't being forced to do so. If a killer whale didn't shake the trainers hand during a show, it's not going to get smacked on the nose with a newspaper. It's still going to get a little bait fish treat, and go on with it's day.
Peta wants these animals to have constitutional rights... umm, so that technically means that after some time, they can run for office right? I think Shamu would have made an awesome senator. She was one kick-ass whale.
