Anyone who's seen Blackfish, or even heard of it, knows this fact:
Whales hate being stuck in aquariums.
This smart Beluga whale figured out a genius way to entertain himself all while getting back at the humans who imprisoned him!
He can suck water into his mouth and spray it up and out of his tank to soak onlookers!
A cute little kid was visiting the Beluga at China's Hangzhou Polar Ocean Park when he got a little too close to the glass.

Check out the video (above) to see how close his whale encounter really was!
This is so incredible.
It looks like real change might be heading for SeaWorld!
Pretty much the whole world has turned their backs on the park ever since the release of the documentary Blackfish.
The latest blow to SeaWorld is
Something smells fishy!
….so why would 99% of viewers say "no" when asked whether the flick changed their perception of the park??!
