Another instance of a deadly killer whale attack happened in Spain. Alexis Martinez was killed by the 14 year old killer whale Keto (Jacobs). Keto was born in Sea World but was later separated from his mother and was sold to a water park in Spain, Loro Parque. Keto suffered with separation issues from his mother and had frequent run ins with his tank mates causing tension, anxiety, and stress to build. On December 24, 2009, Keto pulled Alexis Martinez into the tank where he drowned.
Wild animals such as the killer whales should not be kept in captivity because they are dangerous , breeding a dangerous whales produces more potentially danger. Tilikum is known for his killing Sealand trainer Keltie Byrne .” When she fell into the pool containing all three orcas, she was pulled to the bottom of the enclosure by Tilikum tossed around among the three orcas and ultimately drowned “.Seaworld heard that the 12,000 pound orca was on the market they quickly purchased him for its breeding program. 54 percent of Seaworld 's orcas have his genes.The fact that seaworld is breeding their most dangerous whale tilikum, it should be taken into further into account, because the more whales in captivity with his DNA the more dangerous work becomes for trainers and other that encounter these animals. Since keeping whales in captivity is dangerous we should not be breeding
This caused the other experienced whale to become frustrated with Tilikum and she would rake her teeth across his body, forming many scars. Another issue mentioned in the documentary was where the whales were kept. They kept the whales in a dark, metal, twenty by thirty foot pools for the majority of their lives. A former Seaworld trainer described the modules as “floating steel boxes.” According to Ken Balcomb, director of the Centre for Whale Research,“If that is true, it’s not only inhumane and I’ll tell them so, but it
Marlin met Dory first, a forgetful fish who helped Marlin learn patience and freedom. Marlin’s greatest fear was that Nemo was dead or gone forever. On the way to save Nemo, Marlin faced other difficulties. When Marlin found a way to allow freedom and fun back into his adventure, he began to understand the helpers and tests he endured. Marlin’s worst fear was resolved when Nemo found his way out of captivity.
“Tilikum” SeaWorld 's largest orca, is responsible for the deaths of three trainers, which all three deaths could have been prevented if SeaWorld would have recognized the behavior change in Tilikum. The most recent death to occur was Dawn Brancheau, where Tilikum “scalped and dismembered Dawn as well as breaking bones throughout her body before drowning her.” (Prothero) Since Tilikum was the biggest orca in captivity, he need the most space which led to SeaWorld isolating Tilikum into his own tank. This may have looked like a great idea on paper but because of his isolation Tilikum was literally going psychotic. “Stress of captivity drives Tilikum to exhibit abnormal repetitive behavior, including chewing on metal gates and the concrete sides of his tank—so much so that the most of his teeth are completely worn down.” (Prothero) This stress caused Tilikum to exert aggression to other orcas when let out but also toward trainers. Because SeaWorld failed to recognize the abnormal behavior in Tilikum which ultimately led to the death of Dawn Brancheau and many
He gets frantic starts making comments like “are you insane?” and “we might as well fry them up now and serve them with chips!” The drop off commonly known for open water which is where fishermen take their boats to fish. This is also the area where Nemo gets taken by a scuba diver. Another example of this is when Marlin and Dory are on the hunt to find Nemo and a whale eats them. While they are in the whale’s mouth you can hear Marlin heavily breathing and he is frantically swimming up and down trying to find a way out. Something so simple as the sound of heavy breathing can completely change the mood of the scene and will make you understand the fear they are going through.
When killer whales have attacked sharks they have turned the sharks upside down. When a shark is turned upside down they tend to go into a paralyzed state and can do nothing to fight back. Killer whales have learned that doing this move has shown
In both books, Night of the Spadefoot Toads and Flush, problems occur. And they are both related to the environment. In the book Flush, by author Carl Hiaasen, the main problem is the fact that Dusty Muleman, the owner of a gambling/casino boat, is dumping the sewage off the boat into the ocean illegally. The Night of the Spadefoot Toads, by Bill Harley, deals with the extinction of habitats, vernal pools, for Spadefoot Toads. Books like this show the obstacles characters face to give justice to the environment and the life that lives in
Chapter 1: In Chapter 1, we have been introduced to the three main characters in the book, the setting and also the relationship that exists between the characters. • Abel Jackson, is a ten year old boy who loves the sea, “Abel loved being underwater” (Page 5, and is an excellent diver and “could never remember a time when he could not dive” (Page 5). His mum is his teacher, “Everything he knew on land or under the sea he learned from her” (Page 6). He searches for abalone with his mum around the front of Robbers Head. This is where he meets the biggest fish he had ever seen, thinking it is a shark, for the first time.
That's when Cheswick jams his fingers into the grate at the bottom of the pool and drowns himself. This may have been prevented if McMurphy would have stood up for Cheswick against Nurse Ratched but he didn't. Therefore this shows McMurphy has tremendous power now in the ward and Nurse Ratched knows it. That’s you can say Nurse Ratched fears McMurphy because he's not like the rest of the patients that she can control McMurphy is different. For my third and final example is how McMurphy organizes the Deep Sea Fishing trip and just needs one more man for the trip.
