DO NOT USE MY VIDEOS!!! YOU WILL BE REPORTED!!!
Sept 8 2014 - 3:02pm - @2:02 Gate #8 closes on Kalia (as the trainer thought that she had her with Ulises) Ulises comes over to investigate. Gate #9(Dine with Shamu/SUV pool to the right back pool) opens right after #8 closes, at the start of the video, she was so quick to get away from her trainer and tried to sneak back in the med pool until that gate closed, it seemed like she was pushing it at her own strength, and is okay after they opened the gate back.
SeaWorld responds to my video, please watch it, Most especially the Anti caps. Thankyou SeaWorld for clarifying what happened.
11-4-2014 update, as ive said before, I am not scientific or had animal training nor do i want a debate with you guys about anything, I am just calling it as I see it, Anti caps seemed to be using my video in their fight for the whales freedom, and pro caps are up in arms, I really would like both sides to comment freely, but still be respectful to each other, im really new at this, if this is a game they play with the gates, the gate closed on her gently, as you can see on the video, as I think the newer gates are designed to do that, it also seemed like she wanted to be "stuck" so you make the call, i doubt she was hurt... and i doubt she was struggling.. and for those people who haven't read "about" my channel please read it, i do like seeing the whales up close, at the same time i do believe that they should be free, but the whales they have at the parks, most of them were born in captivity, and i think it would be another Keiko story and i don't want that to happen, but whatever happens i still want the best for them...no ones perfect, anti cap or pro cap, please do your own research and not overreact cause of one video.

11-5-2014 update - a website "Cetacean News Network" has sensationalized my other video "Kalia goes after Keet, Ikaika and Ulises" made it look like Kalia was trying to bite Ulises on a paused video which I know for a fact that its Orkid passing by her and Kalia didn't try to bite Orkid, it was just water splashing, and Ulises was in the Dine with Shamu Pool/SUV, go watch for yourself (don't believe everything right away, do your own research, I do like hearing both sides but both sides would lie here and there, so again do your own research, the picture they're saying that Kalia tried to nip Ulises was a video capture @3:25 or @3:26
The other story was this specific video Kalia "Stuck", if you watched "blackfish" where they showed the "Tamarie Incident which happened in 2002" kinda eerie cause this was the spot where she was sitting, when Orkid grabbed her foot with Splash, that island where they have two gates in between, it looked different, meaning SeaWorld did make changes and going back to blackfish, if you heard John Hargrove talking about Robbin who ran over to help out "he told the trainer to take the CHAIN off Kasatka's Gate" meaning gates back then were MANUAL, not controlled by machine/air pressured gate/pneumatic gate, and Kotar did die back in 1995, and that was in SeaWorld San Antonio not San Diego, of course we don't have a video to prove that they had different gates nor pictures, then the website comments that they "heard" people yelling,
"oh now it's gonna slam her tail!"
A child cries heard off-camera concerned for her safely as the mother consoles him:
im sure the website meant "concerned for her safety"not "safely" lol which im sure the kid wasn't, he was concerned for his own safety, as he got scared of the loud sound, i was there, website wasn't lol and how did you know it was his mom? maybe it was the grandmother. you weren't there and even if, you still wouldn't know lol
what was really said cause I was there.
@2:04 I said "uh oh uh oh"
I heard a trainer yell, oh Kalia's in it"
then i say ohhh got stuck, like i said ive never seen them "play with gates"
@2:33 couple says stuck
@2:39 one says its closing
@2:59 one says "oh now its gonna slam her tail"
obviously we didn't know what we were talking about... im just saying what i saw. theyre talking about the kid crying, he cried due to the loud sound, which was the gate opening back again released air and made this loud noise, and the lady comforts him by saying "don't be scared" "its just air, buddy"
so once again don't believe everything you read/hear right away, watch for yourself, do your own research, and make your own conclusion. do you think SeaWorld does more harm than good?(just because you saw one video of a whale getting "stuck"?) how about asking the company who built this gate for them how the gates actually work?(then well know the truth) and is it the same type of gate that killed kotar?
