Disgusting. Treat animals as if they are worthless and this applies to animal cruelty which is so sad.

I didn't think the size of the enclosures that the animals were kept in were suitable such as the seal and shark enclosures.

Terrible terrible terrible. Super disgusting and disappointing to see the harsh living conditions for the animals. This abuse should not be tolerated nor supported.
