Blackfish: The truth behind orcas in captivity

In CNN Films' Blackfish, filmmaker Gabriela Cowperthwaite explores the truth about orcas in captivity. One of the stars of the documentary, Howard Garrett, joins the Ron and Don Show Thursday.

The film tells the story of the killing in 2010 of experienced SeaWorld trainer Dawn Brancheau by a 12,000-pound orca.

The film includes interviews with a number of former SeaWorld trainers, including one who said he would never take his child to SeaWorld. It's a sobering look at orcas in captivity.
