In an act of corporate courage, Sea World is firing Shamu and their other Whales to satisfy PETA, California Coastal Commission and a dopey Congressman from the Valley. So how do these august folks know if Shamu is happy or not. Is a stray cat taken in to a home less miserable that one roaming the alley? Does a dog prefer to sleep on a bed? Does a dog like riding in the back seat of a car with his head out the window? Who know these things except for some Congressman and his allies?
All we know is that future Shamus will never know either.
