I like rats but I like fish more.
Soo.. Marineland is a marine park 4 hours away from my town. I've gone there at least 4 times in my life. More as a child. I don't really support keeping dolphins and such in captivity.. but this just brought me to tears. The facility is in shambles.. 7 out of 8 seals are blind. Walruses are almost blind. The sea lions are blind.. the male sea lion shook his head and part of his eye (the lens, a thick disk) fell out. The video showed a trainer petting a dolphin and it's skin was flaking off (like a sunburn, but from chemicals). This month a baby beluga was mauled for over two hours because no trainers were on duty to stop the attack, he died. I'm disgusted. This is just.. too much.
A bunch of trainers are quitting because there's nothing they can do, one had to quit on doctor's orders due to chemical damage from what they're putting in the water. This was like.. my childhood dream place.
taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.
