Looks like fun, smells like fun, may be fun, but not if you are the beluga who must dance, lift, and stick its nose in places where other people put them only if they want to climb a corporate ladder somewhere.
At the Hakkeijima Sea Paradise performers are photographed sitting atop a couple of belugas. Indeed it does look like a good show, and I don’t doubt that the animals are well cared for. But, what about this animals having to work for food?
Yeah, humans do that, too. Celebrities do it. Musicians do it. The girls atop the creatures are working and performing for their food as well. I am not for abusing animals, but here’s a case where it seems like it could be fun for them, the animals that is. I mean, who doesn’t like some adulation?
Do you think it’s okay to use animals in shows as long as they are cared for?
