Ask @HardRock Cafe' @Publix and @UPS Why They Support #Dolphin Captivity

      Holise E Cleveland III

      Spring Hill, United States

Scientists have proclaimed that dolphin intelligence is second only to humans and they should therefore be treated as non-human persons, yet ATT, Coca-Cola, Home Depot, SunTrust, UPS, Hard Rock Cafe, Kia, Ford, Comcast, Kenwood, Microsoft and others support captivity of these sentient cetaceans by their partner$hip with Georgia Aquarium.

Their argument may be that these dolphins were born in captivity and not taken from the wild. If so, then they are admitting that taking dolphins from the wild is wrong; therefore, condoning the abduction of the original dolphins who gave birth to the eleven who are now performing at the Georgia Aquarium Sin Circus. If a child is born in prison, should he or she remain incarcarated for life just for being born there?

It takes generations to domesticate a wild animal. How many more must be born in captivity? If a dolphin can be trained to do unnatural tricks, it can then be trained to be wild and free. These dolphins can be released!

They may argue that science is wrong and that dolphins are idiots, in which case, you may want to ask them if they also believe the Earth is flat.

It's the year 2011, yet Georgia Aquarium has decided it is a good time to start a dolphin circus. Reach out and touch ATT and ask Coke if their dolphin smile is genuine by signing this petition.

“There’s about as much educational benefit studying dolphins in captivity as there would be studying mankind by only observing prisoners held in solitary.”Jacques Cousteau
