I’d like you to investigate the phenomenon of Sea World in San Diego in regard to their killer whales. Specifically, I would like you to provide an analysis of the whale Tilikum at Sea World, who is featured in the film “Blackfish.” It is not necessary to see the film “Blackfish” to write your analysis, but it may help give you some more insight into the story.
In 5-7 pages (more if you need to), I want you to outline the history of Tilikum, and provide me with your analysis of whether or not killer whales should be used for entertainment purposes. I would like you to give me both pro and con arguments before stating your own conclusion.
In your summary page, please let me know what you think of using animals for entertainment purposes in general. When and under what conditions do you think it is appropriate?
