Retire and release Kshamenk
#1Kshamenk is living in a very small pool that is the size of a fish bowl. Kshamenk deserves to be placed into a sea side sanctuary off of the cost of Argentina near his pod so he can experience some sort of freedom and also have some communication with his family. He must be freed now before it is too late. Orcas do not belong in captivity and need endless amounts of open ocean to thrive. Please have some compassion and free Kshamenk by placing this extremely intelligent being into a proper seaside sanctuary! Thank you

#13It is so wrong, inhumane and torturous to keep these intelligent beings in tanks this way. We must right our wrong and release them into sanctuaries.

#34Whales should never been in captivity. They should be swimming free and deep with their families. Please stop the cruelty and send Kshamenck home !!

#35This unspeakable cruelty is enough.

#36It is wrong to keep these orcas in captivity. They belong in the wild. Please give this orca a chance to be free again and use that opportunity to educate your children on the importance of these animals to be able to live free and safe in their own environments. We have shifted the balance of nature time and time again and have lost so much in the process. Be kind to Mother Earth and all who live here.

#41It’s time to put an end to captivity and marine type based shows. I think we as a society are starry to wake up and realize not only is this the worst form of cruelty, to put these whales and dolphins and otters and walrus’s and penguins ( it’s a rather large list) on display to behave like marine circus animals. Please it’s time to reconsider how we want the world to be and to put an end to all captivity. Please 🙏

#43Hi, please release this beautiful spirit. The circus needs to stop. These animals don’t belong in a concrete bowl. Please stop the madness, the abuse, let’s be a better human and set these animals free .

#52Kshamenk deserves to be free, he’s spent forever in this fishbowl of a tank and he should have never been taken from his home. Humanity failed Lolita who recently passed away in captivity and like her so many others before her we will not let the same happen to this boy there is still hope.

#53This is the worst prison in the world! Such a shame!!! Such a tiny tank!

#55No whale or dolphin should ever have to perform for humans or be imprisoned in a tank EVER AGAIN.

#61I want Kshamenk to be sent to a sanctuary to live out his remaining years, near his family in the ocean
Emma Grant (Poole, 2023-09-02)
#62Don’t you think this innocent being as suffered enough from the hands of humans being ripped away from his home & family to put be imprisoned in a tiny dolphin pool to entrain for financial gain & to be isolated from his own kind when he is social animal who in the wild would be accompanied & surrounded by his own kind, you can’t change his past but you can make a difference an help change his future do the right thing & set this whale free!!

#70They need to be retired and released

#73Orca Kshamenk is a sentient being, just as humans are. They think, they remember, they have feelings of hurt, anger, joy, just as we do. This is a horrible way to "live" - being a slave and trapped in a small body of water, when he was put in the Ocean to swim free, and far and wide. Please let Kshamenk retire this life, to have space and experience joy, before it's too late.

#74Free them! Now

#75I don't think these animals belong in captivity. They must be able to live freely.

#77This is the right thing to do. This is cruel - he is in the size of a fish tank. You owe it to him to retire him, he should of never been stolen from his pod to begin with. Make it right.
Jade Strain (Mustang, 2023-09-02)
#79These poor beautiful and intelligent animals should never have been held captive to begin with all these years. Please give them the respect to at least let him live out the remaining years of his life at a seaside sanctuary where he can swim at deep depths and roam for miles in the ocean. Find it in your heart to help this poor baby. His birthright is to be free in the ocean, and he has earned it after all these years in captivity. He deserves to be in his home.

#80Orcas have been suffering abuse in captivity for far too long. It is absolutely inhumane and unethical, for the purpose of monetary profit. These majestic creatures are the apex predators of the ocean. That is where they belong, not in pools as trained dogs!
Kristin Glover (Sterling Heights , 2023-09-03)
#81It’s the humane action. Should never be in captivity!

#105Imprisoning an animal that cannot be cared for adequately in captivity for the entertainment of humanity is disgusting, vile, and truly sickening.
