This summer marks the 50th anniversary of the first capture of a live killer whale for the purpose of displaying it to entertain the public.

The following article tells the fascinating story of Moby Doll, the first killer whale that lived in captivity after being harpooned off the British Columbia coast. The hunters did not intend to capture a live orca, but they ended up with a wounded whale in their hands. Read what happened next:

And please, do not forget – Orcas need our help now more than ever. Please visit Save The Orcas and sign the petition on further tightening of the underwater noise regulations!
