That is what I am saying! Where is the vid.

I heard that whale was only used to splash the audience not a ride around whale.

If you ask me it would be nice for a change if a horrific event wasn't caught on tape.

This may come as a shocker to folks but animals don't want us caging them up and trying to make them part of our world.

This is a great doc:

The Cove Movie: Welcome


Basically it is about the guy who trained Flipper and now realizes that the show Flipper has brought a hardship on to the dolphins. He is now trying to save the dolphins from humans.

It's like Steve Irwin. I loved the guy, but you just knew mother nature was gonna take him sooner rather than later.
I bet, statistically, her commute to work was more dangerous than her job.

Wonder what unusual circumstances were involved. They normally do not attack humans, at least as a food source they don't. Could have been the result of some other form of provocation.

Or they just sense fear, like most wild animals.

Demonstrates how unpredictable a wild animal can be. This is a person who has undoubtedly work with this animal on many occasions before. Sad.

YouTube - KILLER WHALE JUMPS ON GUY!
i used to go in the pacific in my lil itty bitty sea kayak when i lived in san diego. man, it was scary as hell when you got 1/2 mile or so off shore. i was always worried about a mako jumping up and attacking me or a whale surfacing below me (that happens).
