Tweet of the Day: Cher calls Sea World ‘Dachau for whales’

Tweet of the Day: Cher calls Sea World ‘Dachau for whales’

For those who missed the story, Sea World theme parks are under siege by animal-rights activists who maintain that training killer whales for the amusement of the human public is inherently cruel. The Wall Street Journal noted yesterday that SeaWorld Entertainment Inc. has unveiled plans to expand the habitats in which the mammals are housed.

Too little, too late, I say. This hardly makes up for the systematic torture of these proud beasts, some of whom have had their flesh seared with hot irons, while others were subject to ghastly, unspeakable experimentation. When the whales have outlived their usefulness, they are shuttled off to gas chambers passing for communal shower.

I didn’t read or hear anywhere that any of this happened. I am extrapolating these details from a tweet by Cher:
