O'Barry has a book to sell. That kind of disqualifies him as an objective "protester." We can't train elephants for circuses because that's cruel; we shouldn't trap predator cats for display because zoos aren't "natural" habitats. Do trees feel pain when we cut them down for lumber?

All these romantic impulses to leave nature untouched somehow end when kind-hearted protesters go to Publix for pork chops or fried chicken.

O'Barry and others like him have legitimate gripes where slaughtering whales and finning sharks are concerned, but when this turns to self-interest, it has a funny smell.
