Cracked.com is one of those sites like TVTropes, Wikipedia, or Reddit where one detour in the name of research or a quick break from work can devolve into hours of wasted time.
During one of those “quick breaks” I stumbled upon an article that could be of interest to those of you who have been following the fall-out since the release of Blackfish:
Here’s an excerpt.
…For example, we were opening a new exhibit at my park that involved us quickly moving a ton of sharks and stingrays, dashing them across the park and dropping them in new homes with virtually no notice, because management needed the exhibit opened fast for “media day.”
It might be weird to think of sharks and rays as emotionally delicate, but they are: They were extremely stressed out by being moved to a new home, and having a tidal wave of loud strangers with flashy cellphones crash through the very next day didn’t help much.
