i found this on youtube a few days ago...I cant believe they allowed it!!!! i cant wait to sign the petition!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0cBBudN0_-E

what really shocks me is that no 1 in the museum did anything!

edit: the dogs eventually died on display in the museum
Was that the starving dog art???? For some reason my computers trying to make me download the latest version of flash... Even though I know I have it. and when I try to re download it, it won't work I HATE this computer.

But yeah I signed that petition like soooo long ago, I got invited to the facebook group I believe.

Have you guys ever heard of Lolita? Shes a huge killer whale who lives in the miami sea prison. She is confined to a dolphin tank, she used to have a roomy Hugo, I believe that was his name. He was massive, when the trainers fed him, his head would fully be out of the water and his tail resting all along the bottom of his prison. But he has long since killed himself, the show business was a little to much for him and he died from massive brain hemoraging because he smashed his skull against the side of the tank one to many times.

Anyways, just thought I would let you guys know, theres lots of petitions you can sign for Lolita, I would love to see this beautiful creature get the respect she deserves. She is literally dying to entertain you. (Not you but you know what I mean )

Oh and Lolita and Hugo aren't the only poor souls suffering at the miami sea prison. Check it out. http://www.miamiseaprison.com/

Free Lolita!!!



EDIT: Sorry, I just looked up Hugo to make sure that was in fact his name.
And it wasn't hemoraging it was...
"He died in 1980
suffering from a brain Aneurysm.
If you really want to see Hugo,
you'll have to take an outting to the Dade County Land Fill
because that's where we dumped him."

Hugo lived in the manatee pool, and was 23 feet long... When he was captured. Heres a picture of Lolita and Hugo putting on a show in their little kiddy pool, looks fun don't it?


The pictures tiny I know, but you get the picture. I recommend that everyone goes to that website. Theres so much people don't know about captivity. But you should seriously try to find the video of the guy who first captured Orcas for the entertainment business. It will totally change your opinion on the whole thing. The guy doesn't give a fly crap about the whales, straight up admits that and all he can say is "They make good money"

And now I'm getting REALLY off topic, lol sorry guys ans gals. Just figured being fish enthusiasts you would feel just as disgusted with this as I am.

OH YEAH!

And don't try to ask Miami seaworld about Hugo. Because your answer will be "Hugo who?"

Hah, they actually try and deny the existence of this whale.

Money, thats whats wrong with them . The website is made by ex staff there I believe. I was so horrified... I feel so bad for Lolita... Shes the longest living whale in captivity... Somehow. She doesn't even get any shade from the sun. She just sits in that pool all day and bakes. She is like 22 feet long and her pool is 18 feet deep :( She really needs to be saved... I wonder if ALF would do it.

Money is the problem with all the worlds problems sadly. I dont want to hear animal abuse stories but im faced with them regularly (because of the dog shelter) and i try and deal with them by helping out how i can. Like i say why should i sit at home feeling sorry for whats happining when i can be out there helping the animals, if everyone wasnt money obsessed then earth would really beautiful

Oh, you brave soul, I worked at a shelter, and everyday I was holding back tears. It was so bad... I'm going to make another thread about Lolita and Hugo, with a link to a petition. And if I can I'm writing a letter to miami sea aquarium. I can't stand the thought of her suffering, and poor Hugo :( He may be lost, but never forgotten. I wish I lived in Miami, or anywhere near there because I probably would have started a massive protest a long time ago.

Yea ive had to hold back alot, try to be naive and not think about it to much, i get more angry then sad, but still i try to avoid talking about what happens. Its sad to see how much the dogs really need someone, even though they have been through so much, thats the worst :(
