To begin lets remember that this are wild animal that can easily kill a human, they are not safe and the people that work with them shouldn’t discuss about individuals passing away, they where the ones who select to work with the creatures. In captivity they will usually have been separated from their families, often in cruel hunts and some when they are very young. Wild whales can swim up to 100 miles a day, hunting and playing. This important because the mental, emotional and physical stress that a captive whale suffers can weaken their immune system and make them prone to disease. Even though captive whales and dolphins are kept in an environment free of predators, pollution and other threats, they die young. The death rate for infant whales and dolphins is also much higher in captivity.
