"My dog was taken from her mother as a baby/puppy and given to me. Here we are 10 years later and I guarantee you she would miss me more than her mother when I die. Kayla is captive born and is very attached to her trainers and I bet that if she misses anyone its Dawn."
Comparing domestic pets to wild apex predators with completely different social structures? Check.
Idealizing a one sided relationship between trainer and Orca? Check.

"You cannot train a trained whale to be wild, and do natural wild things. The natural things you want to train them aren’t natural."
You cant train a trained whale because the trained whale is natural is trained the whale is trained not natural the whale.

"Except the problem that most face when debating the justification of wild captures, is you can’t anthropomorphize the animal.

The concept of an “apex predator” must be lost on them.
