This drone footage, taken by Dylan Brayshaw, is a remarkable record of wild orcas swimming peacefully, even curiously, with an unidentified red-head swimmer (Lucy, is that YOU?).
It is one of the most amazing pieces of video I’ve ever seen.
It proves unequivocally that to make orcas kill humans requires the abuse of captivity.
Please watch this and think about what must be going on in those huge, complicated brains. Then tell your Congress person or senator to pass a law banning the capture or killing of dolphins and orcas in U.S. territorial waters. They deserve it. Thanks!

PUNTA GORDA, FLORIDA – In a daring literary experiment, Malcolm J. Brenner, author of the human-dolphin love story Wet Goddess: Recollections of a Dolphin Lover, has resumed publishing deleted chapters from the original first draft of the controversial 2010 novel.
“This material was originally first published several years ago on my personal blog at http://wetgoddess.net,” Brenner said. Tight finances forced him to discontinue the web page.
“With the recent claim that some scientists have taught a killer whale, or orca, to imitate a few words in English, it occurred to me that this deleted material, with a brief introduction, could be recycled of its own accord,” Brenner said. “I wrote it in 1978, and it is essentially unchanged from my original drafts. I think it is prophetic and wonderfully ironic, given what we now know about how killer whales live in the wild, versus how they survive in even the best artificial conditions.”
The four consecutive chapters will be published one at a time, starting today, on Brenner’s writing web page: https://www.facebook.com/MJBrennerwriter/
“Wet Goddess” has sold about 1,450 copies in 18 countries, and has been translated into Russian. It is available as a 341-page photo-illustrated trade paperback from Amazon. com, and as an ebook from Smashwords.com.
