Free orca Morgan!

me!

This blog is about Morgan, a young orca that was captured off the Dutch coast and has recently been transported to a Spanish theme park, instead of being returned to the wild and to her family.
For more information about Morgan and to see how you can help, please visit:

Free Morgan Foundation:
ABUSE CONTINUES AT LORO PARQUE
Photographs taken by Dr Visser on the 17th of November 2013, clearly show that Morgan has continued to suffer whilst being ‘cared’ for at Loro Parque. Her front teeth are worn down to the gums, others have had more than a third worn off and yet at least one other is broken. Not shown in the photo is a tooth on her right jaw which is nearly worn to the pulp and which may very well have to be drilled out. If not, she may get a tooth infection, which could cause sepsis and death. The photo also clearly shows the extreme damage she has inflicted on herself from continually banging against the tank walls. This is termed ‘hypertrophic tissue damage’ and is often itchy as well as sore. Furthermore, Morgan has banged her head against the tank so often that she has worn away the skin and exposed raw flesh. Yet, Loro Parque and the owner claim that Morgan is ‘doing fine and is in good health’. They also claim that Dr Visser manipulates data. You decide what you want to believe.

    I can’t believe these people are trying to come down on Dr. Visser. Her number one concern is the welfare of orcas....
