Luna, the Lone Whale

By: Anna Schneider

What they should have done to protect Luna

I believe that at least one boat should have been at Luna's side at all times. He was doing fine when Mike was at his side, but the day that Mike left on a trip, Luna was killed.(The Whale, 2011)

Who is Responsible

I believe that Mike and Suzanne were to blame because they were there protecting him everyday, so Luna got used to it. Then the day that Mike leaves, Luna gets killed. Coincidence? I think not.

What Others Think

Others may think that the First Nations are responsible for Luna's death because they prevented Luna from being reunited with his family, but I believe that he would not be safe there either because his family may have not accepted him.
