That's a real nice batch of commenters you've got here, Slog.
I can't quite believe that releasing her after all of these years would be a good idea, but certainly it's clear that the practice of keeping them captive should be coming to an end.
Great article, Christopher!
Southern resident orcas haven't been captured like this for 35 years, and they will likely never be captured for these purposes again. That's a good thing. Though it would be nice if people spent some of this "free lolita" effort at looking at the real problems facing our wild populations of southern resident orcas... Salmon stock depletion, dams, pollutants, sonic blast testing, climate change... I hope the Stranger will be able to devote some page space toward helping and empowering its readers to learn more about what they can do to help make a difference when it comes to those things that matter the most for Orcas today.
