Killer whale at the Olympics

Two killer whales, who have been captured by hunters are on their way to display during the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics. Animal protection adviers say the exhibit effort – was cruel and a “callous attempt to cash in on the Olympics”.

 

The killer whales are the largest dolphin species on earth, reaching lengths of over 22ft are to be kept in a  “small concrete tank” after a 4,614-mile flight from the far east of Russia. Campaigners say the two killer whales, along with six others, are being held “in small pools” near Vladivostok.

 

A source told the Sunday People: “This is so wrong. The Sochi Dolphinarium is shamelessly trying to cash in on the Olympics by exploiting these creatures who should be roaming free in the wild.
