What makes the situation with Angel any different than the lives of other animals being kept in captivity? How can one feel grief for Angel and all of the other animals captured and sold into the industry around the world but defend those kept captive in SeaWorld? (See Here) If you feel as though Angel “misses” her family, wouldn’t that logic allow one to assume Tilikum must miss his?

How can someone defend one over the other when the bottom line is always the same: Profit brought in by wild animals, whether captive born or not, that are trained for entertainment purposes.
