Unconscionable by any measure

One remark in Matthew Spiegl’s piece about the recent SeaWorld IPO stood out:

“[T]o perpetuate the practice of keeping orcas in captivity is unconscionable by any measure of any standard in today's society.”

Not much more to say.

In searching for more about the IPO, I came across references to a new documentary, Blackfish.

Here are a review of the film and an interview with the director, Gabriela Cowperthwaite.

In related news, the Free Morgan Foundation linked to a legal analysis of the Morgan case in the journal Transnational Environmental Law, which the journal has made available for free.
