I read with interest the April 30 story about the Central Coast Aquarium taking over the Morro Bay Aquarium. I have often been horrified by the screams of agony coming from that place and its captive marine mammal, so close to the ocean and yet so far, locked in a cage.
As director of Ocean Outfall Group, I hope executive director Tara Malzone will also release this animal when she keeps her word and releases the two Pacific octopi now languishing in Avila. Note to Tara from the 458 people who have already signed the petition to free the octopi: We will be watching and waiting for you to set a release date. So far, no such date forthcoming.
