The timing of Morgan's pregnancy raises many questions

Captured and locked between four walls, Morgan has just given birth to a baby. And despite their claims, SeaWorld and Loro Parque dolphinariums, which hold all 3: her, the father and the little one, knew perfectly well what they were doing. Dates do not lie; the facts are there.

Morgan, the free orca captured in the Netherlands and trapped in the Loro Parque basin by SeaWorld, should never have gotten pregnant. Why?! Because from the moment SeaWorld announced the end of its orca breeding program, all those captives at Loro Parque - then the "property" of SeaWorld - should have been subject to the same conditions.

Since the announcement of Morgan's pregnancy, all her supporters - as perfectly described by Ingrid Visser and her lawyer this summer at Superpod - want to know when the date of conception was. Only one possibility: deduct it from the date of birth of her daughter! Oh surprise, the conception takes place a month after the stop of the reproduction of orcas in captivity, and the orcas of Loro Parque still belonged to SeaWorld at that moment, including the male who fertilized her!

Second important point to prove, that the dolphinarium directors Loro Parque and SeaWorld were aware of this pregnancy during their affidavit that no orca was pregnant on October 9th. The Free Morgan Foundation, member, as One Voice of Dolphinaria-Free Europe, defends Morgan since its capture. They announced that her pregnancy was in no way a coincidence: it was not an "accident" as claimed by Javier Almunia (head of the Loro Parque Foundation and "in charge" of Morgan) but an attempt by the dolphinarium to still and always make money on the backs of animals, whatever the cost, even bypassing the rules. We don’t put two orcas of different sexes, without contraception and of age to breed into the same pool by chance.

So, whether it's for Morgan or the father of the little orca born on September 22 2018 in a pool, and who will never see the ocean, it's hard to deny the obvious: both companies knew and did indeed act with full knowledge of the facts!

Ne peut on pas faire une action de justice ,porter plainte? Pour maltraitance? Non respect du programme de non reproduction ?

L'argent, toujours l'argent. Et les premières victimes sont toujours les animaux.

Je pense qu'il ne faut pas faire confiance à l'homme... un test de grossesse aurait dû être pratiqué. Sachant que même l'homme peut faillir inconsciemment ou pas, ce qui est le cas, à ses responsabilités. Enlever le bébé bien sûr et l'adapter à l'océan avec sa maman cela va de soit...! ?

pourquoi ne la remet-on pas en liberté dans un lieu protégé. Encore une histoire d'argent. Ces pauvres animaux ne sont pas faits pour être en captivité, Ne peut-on pas faire quelque chose à nous tous, une pétition ou autre.
