    If the dog was the main stud for a multi million dollar company and worth several million himself it would not be...just sayin.

    Exactly. This was a business decision, pure and simple. This animal is worth millions of dollars, since it is no longer legal to capture killer whales in the wild. The morality of putting down animals that kill people had little to do with this animal's fate.

    A ubiquitous street dog is rather different from an orca whale, no?

    Precisely why a comparison of the two is preposterous. My point exactly.

    If a dog killed somebody. Then it most likely has emotional anger problems and was abused when it was raised and should be put down because that can't be reversed. They are not called Killer Dogs. It's in Killer Whales natural instinct to kill. Even if it's raised in the most wonderful, giving, caring community. It will always have that instinct.

    Uh, why are you quoting me?! You are obviously responding to this post:

Yes I know I'm sounding a little smarta**, but what does it take for people to understand animals are animals. They have a different brain than we do, yet you expect them to follow the same "rules/laws" as humans? Lmao- what a joke.

    So a death means nothing? I'd like to hear what does mean something to you.

    Uh, no... once again, I was responding to another post that brought up dogs:

    Even dogs are not at fault when they attack. It's the risk you take when you own an animal. I know this might be shocking news to you, but they aren't people- they are animals and don't have laws to go by and can't drive cars, etc... You know that right?

    I was simply pointing out that IF someone is trying to make the point that they are comparable... a dog would be put down in an instant. Trying to equate the two is absurd.

    How the waters less safe? Just in the past 4 years theres been 2 "incidents" 1 being fatal. But with 3 parks 3 shows a day at least well say thats like 12,000 shows. So in 12,000 shows you have 1 death, and one other incident. The trainers know the risks,they are no different now then before. Hopefully after a few months they will return to the water ,cause I believe its the best part of the show and the biggest wow factor probably. Driving to work is worse odds then that. If you really think about it... thats not bad at all when your working with a killer whale, the top of the food chain in the ocean.
