Female team member's failure to collapse seal pups speaks volumes about women doing men's work

A video making the rounds this week of a SeaWorld rescue team member's failed attempt to herd a seal pup onto a cliff has sparked a discussion that many on the left will consider sexist.

It's unclear when or where the incident occurred, but it appears to have been in Southern California. A female team member is seen trying to grab a seal pup and direct it into a large net holding a male colleague. The young woman makes a gallant attempt, but it is clear that she is not strong enough for the task at hand.

The seal pup manages to break free but falls off the cliff during the struggle. The woman is slumped over and audibly expresses her frustration at the unfortunate turn of events as the male employee tries to comfort her. Again, it is not clear if the animal was injured in the fall or if it was able to reach the water below.

SeaWorld has long been committed to “rescuing” animals in need, with sea lions at the top of the list.

“For more than 50 years, SeaWorld, Busch Gardens and Discovery Cove have maintained a quiet commitment to the rescue and rehabilitation of animals in need, whether they are sick, injured, orphaned or in need of care,” states the website of the company “What has become an extraordinary undertaking did not start as a great idea. Quite the opposite. It started with a single animal that needed help.”

“SeaWorld has rescued and rehabilitated hundreds of California sea lions, northern elephant seal pups, and harbor seals. Less frequently, SeaWorld has treated Guadalupe seals, northern seals, ringed seals, walrus calves from Pacific orphans and a hooded seal,” the company added. “First-year pups account for the majority of seal and sea lion strandings: about 80% of rescued pinnipeds are less than a year old. When a mother seal or sea lion weans her pup, she lets them go alone. The Pups that are unsuccessful in feeding themselves cannot survive this weaning process, and mortality in wild seals and sea lions can be as high as 20% to 50% in the first year.”

As for the discussion of women being misunderstood, it's a familiar argument heard often when discussing women in combat and law enforcement. The hard truth is that men are physiologically stronger and have more stamina than women, although feminists will argue that all day long.
