Causal Argument: SeaWorld is putting trainers in danger
-trainers are not marine biologists, they’re performers
-orcas are wild animals, expect the unexpected
-after many attacks, SeaWorld no longer allows trainers to be in the water with the animals
We trust professional, special animal doctors to treat and take care of our sick house pets. These special doctors are called veterinarians. We should not expect any less professional skills being brought to SeaWorld. In order to become an animal trainer at SeaWorld, not too much extensive training takes place. Anyone who is willing, not qualified, can be hired as a trainer. We would think SeaWorld would bring in marine biologists to train and swim with the wild animals, but they do not. Being taught how to train an animal does not teach a person how to properly care for a creature or teach them how their body works, inside and out. Marine biologists go through many years of schooling to learn about sea creatures. Their skills and knowledge are not brought to SeaWorld.
