The five frat boys from the University of Houston who broke into Sea World San Antonio clearly did not see the documentary “Blackfish,” a film about the park’s orca whales and all the people they injured or killed in captivity. Otherwise, there’s no way in hell they would have scaled the walls in the middle of the night to eat Dippin’ Dots ice cream and take selfies with the killer whales. Those of us who did see the film will never forget what happened to the gentleman who snuck into the Sea World high on drugs to take an orca joyride. Tilikum killed him. Tily and his offspring, while emotional, majestic animals under the right conditions (namely, not in captivity), are not toys to be played with. And I’m certain that they hate dumbass bros who try to takes selfies with them.
While three of the boys escaped arrest, Duc Thien Nguyen, 23, and Huy Quang Mai, 18, were charged with criminal trespassing and theft (for stealing Dippin’ Dots). They should feel lucky they didn’t get raked to death. I say their punishment should be having to watch “Blackfish” on a constant loop until they realize how idiotic they are. [Time]
