Sometimes, trainers have to leave their facility. That means saying one of the hardest goodbyes to animals with whom you spend more time than your own human family. It’s a difficult but in some cases necessary milestone in any animal caregiver’s career.
As a marine mammal trainer, I do a lot of interactive programs. However, I am awful at remembering people’s names. Awful. I think it’s some kind of medical condition. And it got me in some trouble several years ago. Come bask in its hilarity!
Do animals feel and think? Of course they do. Why are humans so full of themselves to think they are the only animal (with the same exact biological stuff as other animals) to make choices and have emotional responses?
I had a random memory pop into my mind that I hadn’t thought about in almost ten years. Thanks to the mind-calming task of cleaning habitats, I was able to unearth this embarrassing gem to share with all of you.
