How are dolphins trained? What happens if the dolphins decide they don’t want to perform?

Dolphins in captivity are not given the option to end interactions or performances when they would like to. They are trained to perform through ‘operant conditioning’. For many animals this means that satisfaction of hunger is dependent on performing tricks; for others, hunger is deliberately induced so the training will be effective. Though a complete food portion is ultimately provided each day, the use of food as a training tool reduces some animals to little more than beggars. 
Captive dolphin programs often train dolphins to perform tricks that people equate with human responses and emotions. Movement of the pectoral flippers is taken to mean that the dolphins are waving a greeting. Vocalizing seems to indicate that the animals are “speaking” to the crowd. Or, the dolphins swim directly up to tourists entering the water, apparently signaling their enthusiasm to interact. In reality, these are highly unnatural behaviors.

I make this post in honor of Cow Appreciate Day and the billions of cows across the world who were not lucky enough to be saved.

On July 2nd, Toronto Cow Save held a 30-hour vigil outside “St. Helen’s Meatpackers” and “Ryding Regency” bovine killing facilities. Even though my body only allowed me to spend a few hours at the vigil, I saw hundreds of beautiful cows trapped in filthy transport trucks. Many were drooling, had wide eyes, and were obviously very stressed out and scared. It is amazing to me though, how quickly, even though all they have known from humans is cruelty, many of the cows will respond to a soft voice, or a gentle outstretched hand. The first photo captures a short few lovely moments I had with one bovine person, who, after only some kind words from me, placed some tiny kisses on the hand I had reaching into the truck. I wish I could have gotten a better picture of their face, but the driver of this transpor truck was cruel, and moved it to where we could not follow. I stayed with this cow until it became unsafe for me to do so, telling them how much I loved them, how I would stay with them as long as I could, and how I wished so much that I could stay with them until the end. It haunts me to think about what become of such a sweet individual, especially since “Ryding Regency” rarely stuns..

The second photo is me visiting my dear friend at a sanctuary whom I have known since he was a few months old. He is of a breed that is typically exploited for beef, and at the time this photo was taken, he would have already been slaughtered had he not been rescued. His favourite things include his herd-brother, Oliver, naps on human laps, and ear scratches. He is honestly one of the snuggliest souls I have ever met, and I am thankful that I have the honor of knowing him!

Two cows who faced two very different realities. I will love them both forever. 

Please choose veganism and help cows everywhere. *Note that I think Gary Francione is awful, but the rest of the starter kit has value*

my protest art for World Orca Day today . if Sea World really wants to inspire the public like they claim they wish to do , they should become a SANCTUARY for injured and sick marine life , not an animal amusement park . they may currently rescue some animals and release them back to their natural habitat , but some isn’t good enough . what about the whales they still continue to hold in captivity? why are they denied freedom? marine animals weren’t put on the earth to be caged for some circus act . captivity kills . LET’S EMPTY THE TANKS!

Arturo lives in the blistering sun of Argentina. A naturally Arctic animal spends his days living in 140 degrees Fahrenheit (60 degrees Celsius) of nothing but heat. 

If this upsets you as much as it upsets me, please consider signing the following petitions:

Please allow Arturo to have a better life in the Assiniboine Park Zoo in Canada

Quickly issue a special import permit to Canada for Arturo the Polar bear.

Free Arturo, Argentina’s only polar bear, from living hell!!!

FREE ARTURO: The Polar Bear In Despair

If you know of any more petitions I can add, please let me know and I’ll add them right away. 

Let’s rescue this poor little guy together!
