So what does this all have to do with captivity?
It's hard to say.
Yet even if making a statement against captivity wasn't this tiger shark's dark design - even if a casual encounter at the aquarium just randomly resulted in this long, drawn-out scene of abject horror - there is still certainly something sad about it all.
As serviceable as having "130 tanks" for marine life may seem on paper, it's literally a drop in the ocean, which is where these magnificent, free-ranging animals belong.
This isn't the ballet. Does it really seem like they're having a wonderful time in there?
Just set them free already.
