Amazing Nature: ORCA Gives Birth
Best valentines day gift ever! After 18 long months of pregnancy and 1 short hour of labour, Kasatka, a killer whale who lives at Sea World San Diego, gave birth to a healthy 350lb calf on Thursday, Feb 14th; A day recognized in some cultures as a day of love.
This video is astonishing. I am in awe of mother nature and grateful that we get to share in Kasatkas moment as she brings forth life. However, I cannot help feeling sad for these majestic creatures as they spend their entire lives in captivity. Also these babes are usually separated from their mum and sent to other sea worlds attractions to bring in more visitors and make more money. Criminal :'(((
Time to end this cruel practice of caging wild animals for spectacle and profit? I say long overdue.
