I have -- studios SeaWorld now being accused of animal cruelty after disturbing footage shows a young dolphins struggling to get back into the water while nearby trainers and do nothing to help Carlo de Leone must shot this.
This video you're watching here while sitting.
Any -- audience with his -- he joins us now good morning.
Since -- -- there with your family celebrating your daughter's birthday noticed this this -- -- and it's it's it is in the dolphins handling but up here.
And it's struggling net of the trainers are -- paint the picture for us.
Will the show was postponed due to -- in that was in the -- -- the trainers were offstage.
And we could see the whales the dolphins in the background playing around one of them gets stuck on the -- starts flipping around.
The other dolphins try to push back in this went on for about ten minutes the crowd became furious and upset I went down until one of the employees that was working exit -- And he just this -- looked at me and said nothing was wrong the well is just -- it was having fun.
I went back to the bleachers I began recording and you can hear the anger in the -- After about a minute of recording.
SeaWorld came on the loudspeaker trying to calm everyone down.
And for the next 1015 minutes the crowds started stomping their feet.
They were screaming and eventually to dolphin trainers came back and push them back in and it's -- that crowd clapped yeah point.
-- Carlo as we look today it looks like the it looks like the pilot whale is there -- -- a ledge and what about six inches of water struggling in and you do it we saw the other -- come over to whatever dolphin or whatever.
SeaWorld says -- and I would like you to respond.
Through some media outlets in responded via us yet but they said.
The pilot whales come out on the -- all the time and always get back into the deeper water without any problem.
The younger and more inexperienced -- what like the one on the video sometimes take a little bit longer because they haven't completely mastered the technique yet.
The whale was never in danger they say what say you.
I completely disagree you could see that it's -- in distress the other dolphins to try to cover pushing back again.
What's even more troubling is that SeaWorld responded to some of the other media outlets saying that this was a pilot well.
That was seriously injured and stranded and rescued by them so that the real question is why would he be even be in an entertainment show.
Good -- we're waiting for -- SeaWorld to contact us all right but -- thank you very much for joining us today on this Monday and -- in the video with.
And I think he has certainly is tough to -- -- -- but at the same time I mean.
We we aren't animal experts we don't know their their exact behaviors and and SeaWorld maybe in the right -- meanwhile two.
