CFC Class- Whales and Tigers and movies- oh my!

First, read and watch this story on recently released footage from a trainer being attacked by a whale at Seaworld in 2006.  I'm not trying to ruin your fun at the zoo, but I think its important to realize that these animals probably aren't having the best time living in captivity for our enjoyment.

Anderson Cooper: Whale Attacked to Send Message

And speaking of zoos, please read Life of Pi.  When the boat carrying Pi's family and the animals from their zoo sinks in a storm, he has to survive on a lifeboat with a Bengal tiger.  One of my very favorite books, ever!!

And last, please the watch the new trailer for the Life of Pi movie, directed by Oscar winner Ang Lee! 

Class discussion: Have you read Life of Pi?  Do you ever feel bad for Shamu?
