I think I know what pisses me off so much about “the blackfish affect”
I’ve spent the last four years of my life formulating the opinion I hold today. You’re going to act like you know the ethical thing to do and whatever it is more legitimate than mine because you watched one documentary? You’re going to dismiss anything that could lean slightly in favor of SW because of the way a documentary made you feel? Like if you had a legitimate argument I could respect you but when all you say is “they’re sad, their dorsals droop, they’re smarter than us, how would you feel in a box?” it literally means “I am blindly accepting everything I’ve heard online and/or BF” and that just rips my fucking heart out.
At least listen to the facts for christ’s sake.

Wild bottlenose dolphins in the Gulf of Mexico. I took these photos this morning. Just wanted to show everyone how gorgeous these animals are, and how despite some misinformed people saying otherwise, dolphins do rake each other in the wild. The last picture is a dolphin biting another one’s peduncle. They are just as complicated as we are: not all kind or good or peaceful, not all malicious or aggressive.

Nah they’re more complicated than we are.
Humans are animals, too ;) I’d say we’re all complicated, none more than the other.

You guys know how much I love cetaceans, but dolphins can be such assholes sometimes.The article says ‘just playing’ yeah I’m not so sure about that, folks. They destroyed those two poor things, too bad its hard to ID what species of Dolphin did this but they don’t look like bottlenose. Which is what’s heard when attacks like this occur more than others, they’re bulbous and domed with no real bill.
Nah, those are bottlenoses, but of the Moray Firth subtype. Big, nasty bruisers. They put other atlantic bottlenoses to shame.
Also this made me laugh :
“The carcasses were removed from the beach for a post-mortem examination to determine the exact cause of death”
Gee, I’m wondering if something other than being absolutely fucked up the ass by these big ass dolphins could have killed them.
and yet they’re still less violent than our own species
Sad but true :(
