Hugo's Necropsy report is now online. -
Hugo’s necropsy (animal autopsy) report is now available to read online. It doesn’t go into much detail. It basically says ‘well we think he died from an aneurysm but we’re not sure’.
SeaWorld claim Tillikum was "rescued" from fishing nets.
Why the fuck would you love an animal that killed three people? I love SeaWorld, I love the whales, but I’d rather that stupid beast take a bullet to the melon in the name of God. I don’t even understand why you care about it. Why don’t you just go pet him, see how fast your arm get’s taken off and eaten! — -Quote on Shit-Pro-Caps-Say about Tillikum. What is wrong with some people.
Anonymous asked: okay but why's gwen privating her tumblr and removing all her videos from youtube? (same anon)
We finally spoke to her last night. She just want’s to take a break from everything. She said she doesn’t want to come back to Tumblr or Youtube, at least for the foreseeable future anyway.

Caitlin's Blog: I'd like to clear a few things up -
as to what happened today. To be honest, I could really give a shit less whether or not people like me or not, but I don’t want people disliking me for untrue reasons. Yesterday, I was looking through my followers pages and I stumbled upon a video someone made of some comments Gwen said on…
Ok so I’ve got my emotions under control now from earlier, so I’m much calmer than before. I want to apologize if you felt attacked by what I said, but I just was very angry over the fact that people were still going on and on about the whole video incident after Gwen made it pretty clear that she was done with all of this mess.
I just wanna point out that there are not any double standards here with a few points:
- Gwen has since apologized (which you’ve been told) and obviously has changed as a person since then. Carly has not done either of these things.
- Gwen has simply called Carly out when she has started trolling and anti cap Tumblr users (mostly just Gwen), while Carly has only stalked and personally attacked her, especially with anonymous messages (Gwen had used a know-anon proxy to figure out if it really was Carly that was sending her all of the hateful anon messages she had been receiving on a daily basis)
- Gwen has personally reached out to Carly privately multiple times,but to no avail. Carly continues to harass her in an obsessive manner.
You certainly are entitled to your own opinions on the rest of this stuff you say, but comparing Carly and Gwen as a double standard really isn’t right. They are nothing alike whatsoever, especially from the abuse I had seen when Carly had her Pro-Captivity blog, from the anon messages she has been receiving over these past couple months, and recently even from her Stealth-Whale blog that she has been using instead.
You can go ahead and block me or ignore me or whatever, I know you’re sick of me talking. I just wanted to get that out of the way, and now I am totally and 100% done with all of this crap.
^ Pretty much.
But you didn’t help matters. When Gwen mentioned self harm and suicide, instead of backing away from someone who is obviously going through a hard time, you decided to mock her statement, saying she was doing it for attention!! (really!!!).
Maybe people jumped at you, but remember a lot of what has been said, was said out of worry for our friend (who we have yet to hear from).
Just drop it will you (and Carly)
Actually, I only replied again when caong said something directly to me and I never once said she was doing it for attention, I said it was an over reaction.
I apologize for getting it wrong and I’ve fixed the last post.
But still, telling someone who talks about killing themselves that they are overreacting is still a terrible thing to say. All that will do is make them feel ten times worse (which is not how you want a suicidal person to feel). You should have just not said anything and backed off.
I noticed that you still haven’t asked how Gwen is or said that you hope she’s ok. All you’re worried about is trying to defend yourself and Carly.
