Let me preface this by saying, I hate killer whales. I’m so over this infatuation with killer whales, like they are the most gentle, knowing, caring animals in the sea. I saw Orca! Also, we don’t call them “warm fuzzy whales” for a reason. They are FUCKING KILLER WHALES. Just because some bozo got the bright idea to capture and train them to perform for our entertainment at a 2nd tier amusement park in Florida (where they have KILLED their trainers), we think that these animals are kind. Free Willy is a lie. Also, they eat animals that actually ARE gentle and cute.
That being said, I have been following this news story about a dozen or so killer whales trapped in Artic ice. The breathless nature of these stories is a giant pet peeve of mine. ZOMG! An animal that likes and lives in cold water gets too close to ice! This is terrible! As if over the existence of earth, there haven’t been other whales trapped by ice. Call me callous, but I don’t care if wild animals are put in peril by their natural environment. Do we have stories on the front page of the Post every time a snake eats a bunny? No. Because that’s f’ing nature. If we were really concerned about the well-being of such animals, maybe we look into things that not in their native environment and are actually killing whales–like fishermen.
