All tag results for 'killer whales'
Marion Cotillard's latest flick, Rust and Bone, has REALLY done a number on her conscious.
As reported last week, animal activists are trying to get patrons to boycott the French film for its use of captive animals and it looks like the movie's STAR is having second (or third!) thoughts) too!
Marion has vowed to never return to a SeaWorld after her experiences in the film.
The flick was shot at a Maryland SeaWorld and the actress explains her decision:
Oooooh….Marion Cotillard…you in trawble!
The French actress stars as an animal trainer in her new flick, Rust and Bone, and scenes in the film show captive killer whales.
Now many animal rights groups are asking patrons to skip out on Rust and Bone and they are appalled that director Jacques Audiard would use performance animals in the movie.
Even Marion had her reservations about her role, stating:
Who knew Tommy Lee's letter was FULL of fighting words!
As reported earlier, the Motley Crue drummer sent a letter to SeaWorld, tag-teamed with PETA, to DEMAND the water park stop blasting Crue music and hurting its killer whales.
Turns out, SeaWorld doesn't even play Motley Crue…EVA!
Two killer whales have been found dead in an Alaskan river.
Killer whales have sometimes been seen near where the river meets the ocean but never that far up stream.
A team of vets and a whale specialist are going to examine the carcasses to figure out exactly what killed them.
They believe it was a combination of the cold and stress from being in fresh water for too long. Poor whales.
The Alaska Department of Fish and Game is looking into how, if more whales are found up river, to safely return them to salt water.
