dumping or releasing?

release to death

被「棄屍」還是放生?大概八年前,一條鯨鯊誤闖台灣南方海域一個定置漁網,後來被送往國立海洋生物博物館,更成為該館的人氣動物,為海生館賺了二十三億元。博物館因要鯨鯊長期住在過小的水缸而被揭發「虐鯊」,鯨鯊在今個月十號被野外放生。多年來因在窄小空間生活,只能在水缸轉圈,讓牠習慣了繞圈游的行為,害牠被放生後多次擱淺。鯨鯊二度擱淺後,在沙灘上暴曬三小時,但放生團隊仍然將滿身傷痕的鯨鯊推向大海,牠最終翻肚下沈。被委托的放生公司並沒有應要求,在放生鯨鯊前訓練牠的覓食能力,更沒有去應付擱淺的應變措施,等同將鯨鯊棄養丟回海中。野生放生不該如此草率!

dumping a whale shark? or releasing it? about 8 years ago, a whale shark was caught in a stationery fishing net in southern Taiwan. it was then transferred to the National Marine Life Museum; being a hit of the museum, it has made the museum TW$230 million.
after eight years of captive breeding, the whale shark was released on the 10th this month. years of captive in a small tank has made this giant adopted a circular swimming habit, one that have led him stranded twice after releasing. Despite the fact that it has stranded on the beach and left there exposed in the sunshine for 3 hours, bruised with wounds, the crew pushed him towards the ocean again, it was confirmed dead and sunk. the party responsible for the release didn’t train the whale shark for the nature before releasing it, and they didn’t have any plan b in case something gone wrong. this is like abandoning the whale shark and just dumping it back into the sea. releasing captive bred animals should be much more well planned and taken much more seriously!
