God's Perfect Asshole
Grüner See (Green Lake) is a lake in Styria, Austria. In the winter you’ll find crisp, tranquil grasslands and lake that is only about 3 to 6 feet deep. However, during the spring, when the temperature rises and the snow melts, the basin of land below the mountains fills with water. The lake reaches its maximum depth of around 40 feet from mid-May to June and is claimed to look the most beautiful at this time.
The killer whale capture quota in Russia for 2014 has been officially announced. 10 orcas are allowed to be taken into captivity from the wild; this number does not include the casualties that will occur as a result of captures.
Most likely the 2 orcas recently captured will not be included in the quota because the captors claim they took them in 2013 and held them in Okhotsk Sea. However, this area is completely frozen during the winter, so it is most reasonable to assume the whales were captured within the past few weeks.
Russia is currently the only nation to actively capture killer whales for entertainment. To end these captures, we need to end the demand. Please do NOT visit or contribute money to ANY facility that houses captive cetaceans in any part of the world. This includes places that make the animals perform shows, tricks, paint, or swim-with experiences, as well as confinement for entertainment purposes.
