“Blackfish the Movie” has spawned a global movement against the practice of keeping orcas in captivity as show animals, according to GrindTV.com.


The site reports the iconic mammals are highly intelligent and form close family bonds in the wild. They roam vast parcels of ocean and should not be separated from their families, animal rights activists say, and kept in tanks and manipulated to perform for food.

Certainly, environmentalists contend, they do not belong at the Sochi Winter Olympics as for-profit show spectacles.
