An unnamed park representative, speaking on the webcast for investors, said of the decision to cut back on the park's killer whale shows:

"The main point is we are listening to our guests. We are evolving as a company, we are always changing."

While the park can say they are listening to their guests, this news may actually be in direct response to recent changes of the law in California.

Russia's Recently Captured Orcas Won't Go To Sochi After All, But Where They're Going Isn't Much Better!

Filed under: Sad SadOlympicsSnow SportsWhales

Russia's killer whales aren\'t going to be on display at Sochi after all!

We previously mentioned that Russian hunters had captured two wild orcas and they were going to be put on display during the Sochi Winter Games.

We also mentioned how freakin' awful that is and how was can't believe people are still treating whales this way.

Hasn't anyone in Russia seen Blackfish!?!

Well, apparently, they have. Or they have a heart at least, because it's reported that the orcas will NOT be on display during the Olympics!!

Hooray! The whales can go free now… right?

WRONG. The orcas were shipped to Moscow and instead of being shuttled over to Sochi, they're going to just stay in Moscow.

Seeing as how Moscow isn't the ocean, we're still not too happy.

Also there's the fact that the aquarium is "still in the process of being built," according to a whale conservationist with some inside knowledge.

We're glad they're not going to the Games but we wish they'd just RELEASE THOSE MAJESTIC CREATURES!

What the fudge?!

These Olympics are shaping up to be the worst yet!

First Russia's government refused to change their incredibly stupid anti-gay laws, and now they've basically admitted they're not orca-friendly!

Filed under: InspirationRescueWhalesAmazing

Three men from Ketchikan, Alaska, Jason Vonick, Nick Segal, and John Oakes, spent nearly four hours saving a stranded killer whale!

The fishermen sprung into action, anchoring their fishing boat and bringing a smaller boat out onto the rocks where the orca was stuck.

They eventually used their oars to free her!
