Orca at San Diego performs with 4 of her babies - definately not. Challenging Seaworld
Challenging the things Seaworld and their Supporters say - Orca at San Diego performs with 4 of her babies.
This comment seems to be repeated over and over and quite angrily too.
i was at SW 2 weeks ago and watched a mother orca perform with FOUR of her children. there has been instances where desperation was necessary, such as one young orca was abusive towards his mother, so they separated them...to save the mother's life!!! do research on BOTH sides, don't just read peta propaganda. they lie!'
'as i've said in multiple posts...i was at SW san diego less than 2 weeks ago and a mother orca and FOUR of her babies were in the tank together.again...i believe my own eyes over your bullshit propaganda'
'SW does not take calves from mothers. that is false info. peta propaganda at its finest.'
I have previously dealt with the mothers and calves being separated. See here
So the next thing is to deal with the San Diego orca's. People can only believe what they are told unless it is proven otherwise.
San Diego Orcas
Corky 2 - was wild caught, had 7 calves none of which are living.
Kasatka - Kasatka is a female orca who lives at SeaWorld San Diego and the mother of
Takara, female - was born on July 9th 1991 and was moved to Orlando in April 2004 as discussed in Blackfish. Note John Hargrove mentions no age for Takara and they show a clip of a large whale in the sling, not a small calf, which also blows another one of Seaworld's arguments out of the water.
Nakai, - male - born Sept 1st 2001 still at San Diego
Kalia- female - born 21st Dec 2004 still at San Diego
Makani - male - Feb 14th born 2013 still at San Diego
Ulises - wild caught only has one offspring through AI who lives in France
Orkid - has never produced any offspring, her mother was Kandu V who died ramming Corky.
Keet -was born to Kalina, she was moved away when he was 18months old. He suffered from great depression and was comforted by Haida 2. When he was 5 he was moved to San Diego although he never saw his mother again.
Shouka - was born to Sharkan in Marineland Antibes. They were worried she would mate with her father and was sent to Six Flags. She was a good candidate for becoming a mother but no male joined her. Kshamenk was due to join her but that fell through. On Aug 20th 2012 she was transferred to San Diego. She is currently 21 and Seaworld are trying to get her pregnant.
Nakai - male - born Sept 1st 2001. He is currently 12 years old and still at the park.
Ikiaka - male - was moved to Marineland Ontario aged 4 on a breeding loan from Orlando, he was really close to his mother Katina. He got on really well with Athena but when she died he unintentionally harassed Kiska who was mourning her daughter. After 5 years at Marineland Seaworld took them to court and got Ikaika back, he was moved to San Diego. Unfortunately he has not had the best start at San Diego and is often raked by the others.He has however now made friends with Corky, Ulises and Orkid.
Kalia - female - Dec 21st 2004 is still at the park with Kasatka, she is very close to Kasatka and doesn't often leave her side.
Makani - born on Feb 14th 2013, he is still a baby and still with Kasatka.
So as you can see there are not 4 babies with their mother at San Diego. Whatever this person was told or believes is not true. It is not 'Peta Bullshit' but straight fact - No mother at Seaworld San Diego has 4 babies with her.
Hope this helps sort out this argument.
