What is the matter with people that they think this is acceptable? Do not support this kind of cruelty. There is nothing cute about forcing an imprisoned animal to learn a routine. Animals are not here for our entertainment.

DEAR ME Welcome to the 1970s. Reported to WHO, etc.

@Listen, errr... the WHO? Do you mean the WWF?

P.S. I agree with the premise. It is ridiculous, cruel, undignified.

Yang, no the WHO, for starters. The WWF, the IOC, the UN, ‘EeeeevERYBODY!’ Animals deserve respect. Not this nonsense.

Jesus, not content with making Halloween a two-month ordeal, people here then have to put animals in these stupid costumes. Yes, undignified. And eye-rolling. But not unexpected.

Pico Taro?  surprised they don't force her to do karaoke......  Plus not sure a hat and broom qualifies as a "halloween costume".

A very sad and depressing photo :( Why does JT post animal abuse pictures like this?

Poor Pico. Suffers for the sake of "amusing" selfish, clueless humans.

Walruses, both male and female, have "tusks" (actually elongated canine teeth) which they use to dig up clams on the muddy seafloor, detecting them in the murk with their sensitive whiskers. Notice that Pico has no tusks. Aquariums cut them off of performing walruses as they act like a pair of knives when the animal gets pissed off.

Having your front teeth removed so that you may be exploited for a lifetime of slavery. Now, that's scary.

This is a horrible photo.

Animal abuse doesn't even begin to describe this.

O agree with others... it's cruel. What is it with dressing animals up like this? Stop it!
