But you did a great job here. And I also would like to thank Junkie Jason Farrow (@JMFTheVCI) for pointing out the actions of the whale Tilikum. Because that's the important sort of detail PETA seems all too willing to gloss over or ignore. If it is to be the case that we humans must grant any set of non-human species the same rights we enjoy, then it only stands to reason that they must be subject to the same or similar laws and penalties as well.
Even if it wasn't murder, it'd still probably be a manslaughter charge or something similar.
Furry cows moo and decompress.
