Re-open the case for Morgan's release back to the wild

The Dutch Government Authorities / Ministry of Agriculture

Re-open the case for Morgan's release back to the wild

    1. Petition by

      Free Morgan

Unless we can convince the government body otherwise Morgan will live the remainder of her life in captivity. She is young and deserves the opportunity to return to her natural ocean home. Even if rumours of her deafness are proven, she could be released into a sea pen/lagoon to live in the ocean rather than forced to swim in circles in a pool, performing demeaning tasks for her food - all for human entertainment. Let your signature be her hope of a life of freedom and dignity. Thank you.

      Killer Whales aren't meant to be held in captivity with treatment of food and orders that they have to obey by daily, they're smart enough to know that they can hunt there prey and survive in the wild sociably with other killer whales. Without a social demeanor, these whales go crazy because 90% of the time, that's what they do. They hunt socially, eat socially, sleep/rest socially, they never leave each others side no matter what and I think that's the most beautiful thing there is in a Killer Whale because they show that they care for one another by looking out for each other. Putting Morgan and other intelligent mammals (such as dolphins) is like being stuck in a house your whole life with only little space that's provided for you to walk around with. There's a lot of similarity to being us humans and that of a Killer Whale, and a lot of people don't realize what kind of mental and physical impacts it has on a killer whale if you were to hold them captive for a long periods of time. These Whales (not just Morgan) need to be set free; ever single one of them no matter what it takes, weather it's just baby steps at a time in order to do the right thing. Besides, i believe anything's possible.

      It is disgusting that this poor young whale is being tortured for human entertainment! She needs to be freed NOW!

      She is a wild animal being held against her will for the sake of entertaining

      Morgan deserves to be released into the wild. Morgan deserves the ability to live free, even if a multitude of steps are needed in order to enrich Morgan's life to what is once was.
